To help students apply their understanding of the places in a 6-digit number, we created human numbers. Students got into small groups with digits and commas to separate the periods. After following given directions (the ones place should be even, the tens place should be greater than 5, and etc), we read each group’s number aloud and discussed the different values and places. So fun!
We also used Play-Doh to create maps of Europe! The children worked well together to create an accurate map. Their creativity impresses me daily!
