Sensational shoe size investigation

On Wednesday afternoon class nine worked on an investigation about finding measurements of people’s foot sizes! We drew tables to compare our results, and made sure that we were triple checking our data. To ensure reliable results, we focused on appropriate predictions. To allow a fair test, it was important to include the variables to give accurate results of foot sizes.

Class 9 – what did you find out from your investigation? Did you make a correct prediction? Were your results surprising?

    i found out that there isn’t much in the size of year 6’s feet

  2. Ellen

    our prediction was…

  3. Ellen

    wrong 🙁

  4. Ellen

    the results were quite odd

  5. Ellen

    then again we did only measure tall people from class 8

  6. Ellen

    (not purposefully)

    • oscar (school council) :P

      There are lots of tall people in Class 8!

  7. jasmine

    our prediction was correct

  8. jasmine

    we found out that class 9 year six have bigger shoe sizes than class 8 year six

  9. oscar (school council) :P

    I found out that I have quite big feet compared to everyone else we measured.

  10. oscar (school council) :P

    Our prediction was that Class 9 would have larger shoe sizes than Class 8.

  11. oscar (school council) :P

    And it was correct!

  12. oscar (school council) :P

    I found it all really fun!

  13. oscar (school council) :P

    The whole class was pandemonium with shoe measuring – that was one of the best parts!

  14. oscar (school council) :P

    I really enjoy science!

  15. oscar (school council) :P

    Especially when it’s practical.

    I loved it. 🙂

    Rudolph the red nose reindeer!
    had a very shiny nose! (like a light bulb)
    And if you never saw him (saw him)
    you would even say it glows (like a lightbulb)
    All of the other reindeer (reindeer)
    Used to laugh and call him names (like pinockio)
    They never let poor rudolph (rudolph)
    Join in any reindeer games (like monopoly)
    Then one foggy christmas eve santa came to say (hohoho)
    Rudolph with your nose so bright won’t you guide my slay tonight then how the reindeer loved him (loved him)
    As they shouted out with glee (YIPEE!)
    Rudolph the red nose reindeer (reindeer)
    You’ll go down in history (like shakespear)

    I enjoyed this science experience because it was so fun!! 🙂

  19. jessie

    I found out a lot that I never knew before.

  20. Harvey and jessie

    I like the science lesson. 🙂 🙂

  21. jessie

    I do really wish we can do something like that again soon!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙁

  22. H@rvey

    I loved the part of the lesson that I was in. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  23. Elle ?

    I really enjoyed writing the blog Miss Platts,I was really excited when I saw it, it is like seeing yourself on TV!?

  24. Elle ?

    In my investigation I measured my foot Paninos but a little sports and Livys foot, our results were mixed up as part of it was wrong and part of it was right!

  25. Elle ?

    I’m really sorry that was a bad type accident?

  26. Elle ?

    I meant to say- in my investigation I measured my foot Polina’s foot Livy’s foot and Ella’s foot our prediction was half wrong and half correct because we got mixed up results.

  27. Elle ?

    Ella and Livy got the same average results as they both had the same amount and length of size Ella how right foot 26 and her left foot 27 Livy had her right foot 27 and her left foot 26

  28. Elle ?

    In our group Palena got the smallest results as her foot size was the lowest result and the smallest in our investigation I had the second smallest feet.

  29. Elle ?

    I think it was fun and I enjoyed using the measuring tape to feel professional & scientific!

  30. Elle ?

    Next time it would be fun to do an experiment again so that we can set out our work like we did in this investigation

    I love science experiments as you don’t know what’s going to happen, our groups prediction was wrong? But we had a lot of fun measuring people’s shoe siizes and I also found it fun working with class 8 as it gave us a chance to work with people we never get to work with
