Student-led Inquiry

The grade 3 students are learning about perimeter in our measurement unit using standard units (cm/m). A small group of students posed the question of what the perimeter of our school would be? Well, let’s find out! The longest unit we had at the school was a 3m measuring tape, which wasn’t ideal but it worked. Soon realizing that a longer measurement tape would be more appropriate, a student brought a 30m tape from home the next day. They were flying! The group even voluntarily spent their recess time calculating the perimeter by adding up the total distances. So awesome!
