During the 3rd central Idea, “How we express ourselves”, grade 5 learners created Tessellations on GeoGebra during their ICT sessions. This helped them to reinforce their visualization skills. Moreover, they modeled real world problems and made connections between the real world and mathematics. Finally, they were able to foster an appreciation for the “Art of Mathematics”.
Grade 5 learners enjoyed their trip to MACAM, the Modern And Contemporary Art Museum in a factory compound in Alita. Learners were engaged in activities to help foster creative development.
First, Learners explored nature through a beautiful hike. Then, they painted “mandala” designs using items from nature. Also, they played with clay and modeled shapes of their own. At the end, Learners were led in a guided tour through the Museum to explore thousands of Artifacts.
