Taking maths outdoors


Following on from last week’s post about the importance of meaningful contexts, how about using the outdoor environment as a stimulating context?

Have another look at Knockbreck’s fantastic numeracy garden here:

This website has lots of fantastic ideas for outdoor maths learning:

Creative Star Learning – Maths Outdoors

          Exploring different types of angles!

                Making outdoor clocks!

                A leafy Tower of Hanoi puzzle!

I also love Stimulating Number Play which has fantastic outdoor learning activities for Early Years (see previous post Stimulating ideas for number play).

It would be great to hear ways you have used outdoor contexts  – please share by commenting or by email!
