Easter Maths

On Thursday, the 4/5 class worked on an Easter themed problem solving activity. A container filled with 15 hollow Easter eggs, was emptied and then re filled with solid mini eggs. Students were asked to find a way of working out how many eggs would be in the container. Students did a great job working out what information was important and coming up with different strategies to solve the problem. Towards the end of the lesson we counted the eggs, then worked out how many eggs each student would get if we shared them equally. Students worked out that there would be 15 eggs leftover for the staff after their share.
