We made paper aeroplanes and estimated how far they could fly. Then we tested them by throwing and measuring the distance they flew.
The students knew that 1m is the same as 100cm. They used a metre ruler to estimate and measure the distance of their throws.
As you can see, Satui was spot on! Miss Letcher threw her plane the furthest (she has longer arms than the children so it wasn't fair! )
The children learned how to fold the paper aeroplanes, how to throw them, and how to estimate and measure using metres. We had heaps of fun doing all this learning!
