We learnt the rule of the Fibonacci sequence. Fibonacci numbers are an interesting mathematical idea.
The Fibonacci Sequence is the series of numbers:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, ...
The next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it.
- The 2 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+1)
- Similarly, the 3 is found by adding the two numbers before it (1+2),
- And the 5 is (2+3),
We did some investigations-
We had to continue the pattern and see how far we got.We did other challenges too:
On many plants, the number of petals is a Fibonacci number and the seed distribution on sunflowers has a Fibonacci spiral effect.
The Fibonacci number pattern can also be seen elsewhere in nature:

We drew the patterns on a piece of squared paper.
We went for a treasure hunt.
