As Primary 4 have been learning about area, today in Forest Schools we challenged our pupils to find the area of leaves. They began by using non-standard units (such as daisies, sticks, pine cones and plant petals). After a discussion, the children realised there was a need to use standard units, so they were all given cubes.
We also discussed how best to find the area of a large square which had been set out. The children worked together with some wool to create their own squares inside the large square and we counted them together.
