Can you imagine 5 cubic metres of wood?

posted on November 9, 2009

The children of Bladon Primary read that the oak tree would give us 5 cubic metres of wood, but they didn’t know what a cubic metre was.

So they made one in their hall. All 19 of them could stand inside it!

Then, using the whole class and metre sticks, they made the 5 cubic metres. This is how much wood we expect to be able to use from the OneOak tree once that it is felled.
