Materials Pass the Parcel Game

Materials Pass the Parcel Game

We played a “Pass the Parcel” game today.

It is fun but it is a little bit more work than usual.

Before we unwrap each parcel we have to describe the properties of the covering.

We had words like smooth/rough, plain/patterned, absorbent/waterproof, transparent/translucent/opaque etc to help us.

When we opened up the parcel each time we found a maths 2D shape which we had to describe, and  of course we got a little present to keep.

We had fun while learning about different materials.
