This resource is aimed at pupils in middle/senior classes or SEN pupils working on square numbers.
Cut up the sheets into fifteen separate cards and laminate them individually. Pupils should work out the square number on the top of each card and place a clothes peg on the correct answer on the bottom of the card.
The pupil may use a calculator to work out the answers.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can work out the square numbers. It is a way for them to demonstrate their understanding of square numbers. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what Maths topic we were currently working on.
This activity could also be used as an independent work task completed by a pupil in their work station.
