Multiplication (tables): 5x: starfish
- Have a go at the fabulous Starfish Spotting investigation on the NRICH website, where you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge of both the five and two times tables.
- Starfish move across the seabed using tube-like feet that are located on their underside and which fill up with seawater! Using the photograph below, can you give a reasonable estimate for the number of feet this starfish has?
- Investigate symmetry in starfish.
Thousands of brittlestars wave their arms in the hope of catching a meal.
