10 to 12 year olds

In the drawing there is a grid, a house and a bird. You can only move along the grid lines. We take as the unit of length that of the side of a square on the grid.

To go from the house to the bird, the shortest distance is 6 units. We show you one of the routes of that length.

a – Find two other routes (from the house to the bird) of 6 units.

b – Now draw a 8 units route and a 10 units route.

c – Then draw one of 7 units and another of 9 units.

Explain what happens.
