Can I make equal groups?
Alternatively, find 12 items around your house. Can you share them into 2 equal groups? How many are in each group? Can you share them into 3 equal groups? How many are in each group?
Now find 13 items. Can you share them into 2 groups? How many are in each group? Are they equal? Why?
Can you choose some more numbers between 1 and 20 and investigate if you can share them equally between 2 or 3 groups? What did you find out? Can you write a some statements using always, sometimes and never? E.g I found out that you can always share an even number into 2 equal groups.
In the 15th and early 16th centuries, the Aztecs were people who ruled a large empire in Mexico.
Can you do some research and find out more about the Aztecs?
They created beautiful artwork like these Aztec suns below.
I would like you to have a go at making your own. Look carefully at the interesting Aztec patterns and bright colours that you could use.
I would love to put your artwork up on our Mexico display to show you all! If you would like to email me a picture of your art or send it into the school that would be fantastic.
