Prep Mathematics

During this week, Prep have learnt about position in Mathematics. We completed an activity that focused on placing animals in different positions on the farm. In Prep D, we wanted to show how we can use these positioning skills by building our own structures. In pairs, students worked together to build an enclosure or a bridge with various materials.

They placed animals in varied positions such as inside, outside, on top of, underneath and beside. Students then described the positioning of each animal around their structure. It was fantastic to see how creative the children were with their structures.
