Fibonacci and Oceans of Plastic

Dear parents of 3B,

LEARNING

Literacy: We are moving on from the structure of an information report to adding the necessary supporting details. We made a connection to prior reading lessons on asking questions of the text as a strategy to strengthen our writing.

 

Math: Happy Fibonacci Day! This day, November 23, recognizes the importance of the Fibonacci sequence (or Fibonacci numbers) in mathematics and our everyday lives. We investigated the numerical pattern and had a go creating a visual model in the form of the Fibonacci Spiral.

We also made connection to the idea of place value and scale and – creating place value collages to represent a four digit number with accurate scaling.
