Grade 5/6 camp – The ‘Ga Ga’ game

Ga Ga is a cool and fun game to play with a class or friends.

You play the game in a pit with some sand and a ga ga ball (medium sized rubber ball). You are not allowed to kick the ball, you can only hit it with an open hand. It is similar to dodgeball. The object is to eliminate others by hitting them with the ball below the knees. The last person is the winner.

Ga Ga is an active fun game to play.

Exploring 3 Dimensional Shapes

Grade 5/6 have been looking at 3 dimensional shapes and learning to identify the number of faces, edges and vertices. We used Frameworks building shapes to create spheres, cubes, square based pyramids, triangular and rectangular prisms. We also used a collection of different shaped boxes to discover the nets of the shapes. We had fun with some online interactive activities that helped us to identify 3 dimensional shapes and use problem solving skills to complete problems involving the shapes and their characteristics.

What are some other 3 Dimensional shapes that you know?

Why is it important to learn about 3 Dimensional shapes?
