P5 – Taking coordinate grids outside

P5 took their learning outside today!

We have been learning to create a coordinate grid and plot points.   We began to use compasses outside too.  When we drew our grids we also tried to estimate 30 cm between each number.  

After we created our own grids and used our knowledge of plotting points and compass directions, we tried to create our own games of human battleship or ‘connect the dots’ to create a picture.
