Counting Our Junk Mail

Counting Our Junk Mail

Students collect junk mail from home and bring it to the class to conduct a mathematical investigation. Students engage in a range of mathematical investigation around their junk mail, including counting the number of pieces of junk mail collected, weighing the mail, measuring the length and area the mail covers. The class will then make their own ‘no junk mail’ sign to take home. Students will know what junk mail is and why it is used, recognise the environmental impacts of junk mail and know some actions they can take to reduce the negative impacts of junk mail on our environment.  Students will know a range of ways we can use maths to measure real world objects, be able to think critically about junk mail, measure, sort and compare objects mathematically, as well as participate in class discussions and activities.

2 x Weights and Measures Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Units

2 x Weights and Measures Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Maths Units

2 x Wordsearch Puzzle sheets on the theme of ‘Weights and Measures’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
