The Grade 3 Technoboffins recently made Photostories on the properties of mathematical shapes. This lesson was interesting, fun and the students learned a lot of new skills.

The programme saves the story as a Windows Mediaplayer file which is then viewed as a movie. Here is one example for you to view:
