This third grade common core aligned activity focuses on Place Value, an important concept which helps students understand the meaning of numbers. Understanding this concept will make it easier to add or subtract numbers, as well as use multiplication in the future grades. After reading the book, Earth Day-Hooray! By Stuart J. Murphy, students can use the trash bag and can counters and task cards to reinforce place value understanding.
This activity comes with printable trash bag and can counters, 12 task cards, and a recording sheet. These cards can be used as a group activity such as" Showdown", independent work, or in math stations.
Earth Day- Hooray! can be purchased at www.mathstartbooks.com
