A maths activity from NRICH which introduces humour to counting and recording to add to the enjoyment. The children will find this number activity funny.
It is a good opportunity for them to practise counting and to record findings in different ways. And there's the added bonus that everyone could have a different answer and be right. Learners will need to find strategies to keep track of where they have got to in terms of numbers of legs and to regulate and re-adjust as they get close to twelve.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
