Here is a fun math sheet that would make a great addition to a bear unit or when paired with a bear picture book. The Very Cranky Bear by Nick Bland is a particularly apt fit.
In this activity the students will count collections of place value blocks and then color their answer with a corresponding color. It is like a color by numbers only using place value blocks and a 100s chart.
Place value is a very important concept for primary children to work on. Being able to relate numbers to corresponding images, such as place value blocks, will greatly help them with their addition and subtraction work, especially when they start working with two digit numbers.
This file contains two pages:
1) A blank 100s chart with a page of place value images for the students to count.
2) An answer key showing the final image.
The final image your students will create is a grumpy bear!
Note: This is a more challenging sheet as most of the squares on the 100s Chart will be colored.
This file is also available as 8.5x11 sheets. If you are unable to print 11x17, these would be a much better option. In the 8.5x11 size the 100s chart and place value clue sheet are printed separately. Please visit my store to get that file.
You can also find other 100s Chart coloring sheets for place value, addition, subtraction, & multiplication in my store.
