Adapted from NZ Maths unit Foil Fun
Adaptions for ESOL students: Christine Jones
|Duration: 1 week (This unit may take longer for students learning in their second language. Be prepared for extra days.)|
Geometry Level 2:
Students will be able to:
Language learning focus
Focus on building vocabulary and mathematical literacy
How to achieve the language learning outcomes:
In this unit students will be having hands-on experiences with three-dimensional solid shapes. They will investigate the features of solid shapes and learn the names for them. They will be introduced to making nets for 3D shapes.
A description of the mathematics explored in the unit
This unit explores basic solid objects by allowing the children to play with them in a structured way. The end product of the exploration is the construction of nets. All of the activities here will strengthen the children's concepts of 3D objects and their attributes, as well as the relevant vocabulary. This knowledge will be an invaluable basis for work at Levels 3 and 4, where more subtle definitions of shape are used ( Te Whanau Taparau - The Polygon Family).
