Students were provided with the task ‘Our School Needs A New Hopscotch To be Painted In the Playground’. We spoke about measurement and square sizes needing the accurate and equal sides. There as no rules about shape sizes.

Students created templates and used different design strategies to test their ideas. Today students were taken outside and employed to provide the school with a hopscotch game. The students reflected on the challenge, what they could do better next time and the importance of accuracy and measurement.
