Deck the Halls

Christmas Math is spilling out into the hallways of our schools!
Check out OMSK’s Grade 3 Christmas scenes, complete with measured houses and conical conifers!
Then scroll further to see the stacked measurements of ILTO’s Grade 2 Christmas tree towers. 
Scrunched inbetween are some reindeer, with complete instructions on how to make one yourself!
Now that’s combining numeracy and literacy in a fun, festive way.

Haunted Math Houses

Spooky math is happening in Mrs. D. Hill’s grade 3 classroom at OMSK.  Students were each given a milk carton, which they then had to measure accurately with their rulers.  Next, they had to use those measurements to cut out the right size covering for their haunted houses.  Like any proper contractor, the measurements had to be designed to fit perfectly, so that the milk carton was completely covered, with no overlap or insides showing.  Take a look at these amazing Haunted Houses. I bet Mike Holmes would claim that Mrs. D. Hill’s class knows how to “Make it Right!”
