Drop the Number is a fun activity to use when practicing place value counting. You'll need to make ten number sticks for each student using craft sticks and a marker. Draw ten dots on one side of the stick and one dot on the other side. Students will need their ten sticks and a recording sheet to do the activity. They toss the ten sticks, count the number. Next they draw and write the number on the recording sheet. This works well as a math center.
