One of our most endearing and popular resources. This excellent investigation for mixed ability groups has inspired many other Skillsworkshop contributors to create related Smartie resources (see below for just a small selection). Covers almost all data handling curriculum elements from Entry 1 to Level 1 along with other elements from N1 (whole numbers) and Measure. Topics covered include counting, estimating, addition, sorting, tallies, bar charts, mean, range and more.
4 sets of word cards, 2 sets of picture cards. Sort, match, order and group cards. Metric measures, imperial measures, units of time, measuring instruments, suitable units. Makes great starter or revision activities. Build active learning into your lessons. Ideal for visual and kinaesthetic learners.
Great series of differentiated assignments (2 each at Entry 2, Entry 3 and Level 1) using the Royal Mail web site or leaflets (last posting dates, parcel prices) for the postage assignments, and an Argos (or similar) catalogue for the Christmas present assignment. Topics covered include reading tables, weighing, working with decimals and money, using calculators.
Updated in 2007 to reflect new postal rates but you wil need to get the lastest price list from the Royal Mail http://www.royalmail.com/
