Grade 7

  • What is a structure? Where did humans get many of their building ideas? Man observes nature, and many of our structures are based on things we see in our gardens, our woods, and even in animals and their homes! In this activity, students will be challenged to look at a garden in terms of human structure, and compare what they see in nature to what they see around them. Wrap up: Discuss students’ variety of answers.

  • Students exercise their abilities in estimating and calculating circumference and subtraction. Teachers number 10 trees within the schoolyard and students then go outside to find each tree (1-10). First the students estimate each circumference, measure each circumference, and then find the difference between their estimation and actual circumference. Wrap up: Compare numbers, discuss which students had the closest guesses, etc.
