A L4 resource which goes with the Mathematics of Area resource. Good kinesthetic basis with lollipop sticks, ideal for the disengaged pupils.
There is a link to a Maths Watch video and good differentiation throughout.
Lacks te rich questioning but a sound basis for starting of the topic with L4 and L5 pupils. There is ample scope for enlarging the kinesthetic task and making it more problem based, less teacher-led.
