This is a maths resource that engages students with their visit to Godshill Model Village. The resource task enables them to practice their number skills giving opportunities to demonstrate understanding of place value and tenth scale. The students will then measure the classroom or similar room, calculate a tenth size and create a tenth scale model.The task is designed to appeal to students in key stage 2.
This is a maths resource that engages students with their visit to The Model Village Godshill. The resource task enables them to practise their number skills giving opportunities to demonstrate understanding of place value and tenth scale. Students will measure the classroom or similar room, calculate a tenth size and create a tenth scale model. The activity will give pupils the opportunity to practise finding tenths of numbers and measurements, before the visit, thereby enriching their experience at The Model Village. They will then measure a house at the venue. There is also a follow up activity for upper key stage 2. The resource is designed to appeal to mixed ability students in upper and lower key stage 2.
The pre-visit resource is intended to help the students appreciate the precise scale to which the models at The Model Village Godshill are made.
Completion of the main worksheet - taking measurements.
Model-building! Upper KS2 students find 1/10th of the measurements taken on site, and construct their own 1/10 (1/100th) scale models . This activity is quite fiddly and will require a certain degree of dexterity in order for the completion to be successful. Â„ Alternatively, students could attempt to build models using similar measurements to those collected, or by using multiplication, work out the actual size of the real house on which the model is based.
Students will demonstrate their skills in handling data within a decimal grid. They will understand what is meant by a 1/10 scale model and will create their own 1/10 scale models. Students will respond to the work of others in a critical way giving appropriate feedback.
