Icebreaker investigations for your new class

iMaths 1/3/21


Note: iMaths is in its final year and will be discontinued at the end of 2024. If you’re looking for a primary maths resource written for the Australian Curriculum Version 9.0, explore Maths Trek.

Are you looking for an investigation that helps you and your students get to know each other at the beginning of the school year?

The following iMaths Investigations are an ideal place to start:

Foundation: Investigation 3 Happy Birthday Humpty
Year 1: Investigation 1 All about birthdays
Year 3: Investigation 1 How do I measure up?
Year 4: Investigation 4 The time of my life
Year 6: Investigation 5 My personal profile

You can also use the Investigations Overviews to identify investigations that tie in with other school events, such as the local show day, sports day or swimming carnival. Not only do the overviews offer a snapshot of what each investigation entails, but they also provide you with an ‘Ideal for…‘ prompt so you can easily link investigations with other scheduled events on your class and school calendar.

View the Investigations Overview for Foundation, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 or Year 6.
