We made paper chains using lots of different coloured paper. Can you see the patterns in our chains?
After comparing and measuring our chains with others in the class we joined all our chains together to make one long chain.
We wanted to know how long our chain was so we stretched it out across the playground.
It was REALLY long!
We measured our chain by walking along the length of the chain and counted how many footsteps we took from the start to the end.
Some of us counted 40 steps…
…some counted 47 steps…
…and others counted 51 steps!
Why? We think the reason for the difference is that some people took small steps and some people took longer steps.
Later we all held hands and stretched out along the chain. We discovered it takes 28 children holding hands to stretch from the start of the chain to the end.
