Fair sharing – greedy pirates!

image In our outdoor learning area today we found lots of treasure, money, numbers and bags of loot. Pirate Pete came to school last night and was very grumpy with his crew because they have not been doing fair sharing. Some pirates have been taking too much treasure, saying that their loot could not be shared fairly. We have been having a go a ‘fair sharing’ between two pirates to find out if all numbers to 20 can be shared fairly between 2 pirates (Pirate Pete thinks they can).imageimage

These numbers were all a fair share. What do you notice about these numbers?

We have been learning all about measuring capacity. We have used the mud kitchen to create pies, cakes and drinks that we’re full, half full and empty! We explored overflowing and compared containers to learn that capacity measure how much available space there is. image
