Measuring Madness
We have spent a lot of time this week getting hands on with different measurement units. From filling containers to understand milliliters and liters, measuring objects in the classroom in centimeters and working out the times that the rickshaw bus takes to get around Hong Kong. Enjoy a photographic snapshot of the activities below.
