We have been making headway in our mathematics curriculum by looking at our next unit, graphing and data handling. The children did an activity that involved rolling the dice and recording the data. Rolling dice to collect data is a great way to introduce the concept of probability and teaches hands-on graphing while promoting collaborative learning by working together in a group. The children took turns rolling the dice and then recorded the data on their graph within a set time. Once time was up, the children came together on the carpet to analyse their data and answer questions on their worksheets. In our Unit of Inquiry lesson, the children did an outdoor activity with a giant map drawn with chalk. Children recapped the names of the continents and tried to find where they came from using reference maps. Finally, they held out their flags for a group photo.
