You're 12 scissors tall!
To look for new ways of measuring and representing measurements.
Scissors, cardboard, camera, and found objects.
- The metric system, part of the mathematics curriculum, can be an endless source of fun and creative exercises.
- The students measure large objects such as tables or doors, and other smaller objects found in the classroom, such as pencils or shoes.
- The objects are used to measure the height of one of the children: Mohamed is 15 tubes of glue, 12 scissors, six boots … tall.
- The children create an installation that relates the child to a number of elements of the same height, combining objects and people.
- A picture is then taken of the activity.
- Letters are made out of cardboard to write an inventory of the different objects used in the installation.
