Wrapping tea cups

Today in numeracy we were problem solving. We had to measure out a container to keep a coffee cup warm. Wrapping tea cups in paper was so fun!My favourite part was when we were wrapping the tea cups in the paper.But it was a mess.

  2. Hello Mr. Aiston and class,

    What an interesting idea. I would suspect most heat is lost from tea through the top of the cup so I would first seal the top then think about adding extra insulation to the sides.

    I can understand the task becoming messy if the teacups were full. Paper generally doesn't stay strong when wet.
