Investigating Place Value

Posted by on November 5, 2017

What a week we had last week!  We used straws to represent the number system and to look at the relationships between the digits.  We made bundles of ten, a hundred and a thousand and were very surprised by how puny ten seems and how many straws one thousand actually is.  One thousand straws is an entire armful.

In a following lesson, we explored the size of tenths and hundredths and why these names were used.  Making proper tenths caused some frustration- they have to be equal sizes you know. And as for hundredths…

Lots of fun and loads of learning for all. A great week’s work year 6. Keep it going!
