Making A Million

Class 2 have been carrying out a very interesting maths project. They have been trying to visualise what a million looks like so they challenged themselves to imagine what a million paper clips would look like.

They began joining them into strings of 10 clips, then into 100. Eventually they linked together 1000 paperclips and stood in the playground holding the string in a circle. This was measured and then multiplied by a thousand to find out how far a million paperclips would stretch.

Where do you think a million paper clips would reach to? The answer will appear on the website shortly!
