Paper cones

posted in: Oak Class News 0

This week we have read the Aesop Fable “The Ant and the Grasshopper”. The ant is busy collecting corn, ready for winter. We had a go at making cones from paper, to help ant collect the corn.

We tried making cones from different shapes, such as rectangles and circles. We rolled them, making sure there wasn’t a hole in the bottom. We noticed which cones held the most seeds and which shapes were best for scooping.
