Making Playdough

We have been learning about Volume and Capacity as part of the Mathematics Strand Measurement. Our learning objective was to accurately measure volume using standard kitchen measuring cups so we decided to make play dough.
Here is the recipe written out by Yashwitha.
Some of the things we learnt were:
You have to put the ingredients in all the way up to the line.
You have to count the number of cups carefully.
You have to put ingredients in the bowl in the right order.
You need to be careful of the hot ingredients.
Play dough is fun to play with!

Cybersmart with James Hopkins

Yesterday was our first day working with James Hopkins who is our Manaiakalani facilitator. He talked to us about choosing a password for our Chromebooks. We made a Padlet with Room 6 about our ideas of why we have passwords, who we tell our password to, and where we should keep them.
