Wrapping

I was wrapping up my dad’s birthday present. I laid his birthday blanket square on the paper so the edges of the blanket and the paper were side by side; parallel.

However, when I pulled the edges of the paper over the blanket to stick one over the other, there was a gap! I didn’t have enough paper!

How did I solve the problem? Why don’t you try wrapping something up and see if that helps you work out the answer?

Wonky bike!

I know exactly what this means when I see it painted on the road. But no bike I’ve ever ridden has oval wheels!

Have a think about how it would feel to ride a bike with oval wheels. What could you use to help you work this out.

And then have a think about why someone would paint a bike on the road with oval wheels.
