Using natural resources at home
Help children to learn maths through all their senses, including touch, smell, sound and taste.
● Explore empty and full using big containers – use wet sand, pebbles, branches and boulders.
● Investigate measures – look at tiny seeds, then measure the height of runner bean plants or tall sunflowers or balance leeks, marrows, potatoes and tomatoes.
● Collect, sort and count natural objects outdoors – leaves, twigs, stones, pebbles, fir cones and flowers.
