Measuring and Costing a Bird Table

To improve our skills of accurate measuring and using the four operations, we undertook a challenge to make and price a bird table in a 1 hour lesson. We were very careful about how we measured out the individual parts of the bird table, to minimise waste and hence the cost of producing the bird table. We then calculated the area of the material used, in order to calculate the proportion of each sheet required to construct the bird table. This enabled us to accurately cost the bird table from a price list for the materials.
