This lesson/activity includes practices sheets, examples, and templates for making paper Flats in the Base Ten System. It also includes a final book and a quiz that can be used pre and post the activity to measure students growth.
Students will need colored pencils. Plastic money would be another beneficial manipulative, if you have them. Most schools do not, so this lesson plan was formatted to the Base Ten Manipulatives already in the classroom.
See my free product Base Ten Paper Template which can be printed and used with this lesson.
This activity will take about two hours to complete. If using best bath Practices, this activity could take up to 5 hours. I did the worksheet in two hone hour classes with my students and sent the book home as a weekend homework project. It can be adapted to other grades wanting to learn about money
