Workshop and Andventureland Mathematics
elemantary school, form 1 – 4
Content: How did poeple count or calculate with the help of their bodies a long time ago?
The kids will determine dimensions and weights first-hand while playing and comparing with others.
Procedure: How did people count and calculate only with their bodies a long time ago? With the help of their own bodies, the class will investigate and compare measures and weights in a playful way. At some stations, they will discover historical measuring units such as cubit or the arm span. They will try out various instruments and methods on their own body.
