So I have a fun activity that I wanted to share with you. In math, we have been review place value concepts. I finished the unit today with one of my favorite activities that I do with my kids each year. A lot of teachers that I work with use this activity, and they always turn out so cute. I did not come up with this idea, and I'm not sure where it came from, but it would be so simple to recreate if you wanted to! The only materials that you need are paper base ten blocks and construction paper!
The students use paper base ten blocks to create a base ten creature. Then, they find the value of their creature, write the value in word form, and then write the value in expanded form. Here are two examples that my kids did today! I love seeing how creative they get:)
Well, that's about it for now! I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend:) Have a wonderful week!.
