Roman numerals math (my kids know how to read Roman numerals from their McGuffey’s lessons; use Popsicle sticks on the table) Big hit with 8 and 10 year old; we went up to 11. I handed 8yo the total number of sticks she would need to form into shape. However, she can read Roman numerals easily; today she read “49” in her McGuffey’s. Each number is a little equation: 1,2,3, are easy, teach that V is five, so 4 is “1 before 5 or I before V”, 6 is one after 5 or I after V = VI, etc

Making Roman numerals with popsicle sticks. We could use the match sticks. Great idea, seeing as it's now in the maths curriculum!

Looked up Samurai soldiers - the costuming looks pretty intricate and intimidating to paint. I could see us making something more like this much easier and cutting out the face. Also, without the info boxes, that will all be on the info poster.
