4. Use your tape measure to measure the distance your plane has travelled.

5. Record the distance on your Data Collection Sheet. Write it exactly in metres, centimetres and millimetres in one box, in centimetres and millimetres in another box and just in millimetres in the final box.

Wednesday 1st April - Shapes & Patterns

Shape Patterns

Today we want to help you and your little ones learn about shapes and patterns.

Shape Patterns is a sequencing game where children from 3 to 8 years of age need to complete the pattern of different coloured 2D shapes.

It is a multiple choice game with three levels of difficulty. It is excellent for shape recognition and for problem solving.

In the easier levels children need to continue the pattern but in the more challenging level 3 children are presented with a sequence with the missing element in different positions.

This level in particular, is an excellent problem solving activity.

 

For the best experience press the full-screen icon in the top right corner of the game. Shape Patterns is tablet friendly.
