The Big Easter Egg Challenge

Both Primary 6 classes took part in the annual Big Easter Egg Numeracy investigation.

Both classes were divided up into 4 groups and given 1 Easter Egg.  Each group was then set the task of designing a box big enough for 8 such Easter Eggs to fit into exactly!

This linked into the P6 topic of volume in mathematics. The winning group could eat the egg between them!!

The children had no longer than 15 minutes to complete the Numeracy Investigation and EVERY member of the group had to take an active role, monitored by the two class teachers.

Ask the children did any group get to eat their egg!!!!

A great way to end our most recent Numeracy Topic.
