Students will work individually and as a group to create a line of snowmen with ordinal numbers!
Individual: Have students trace their number, write it on their own, then make the number in the base of the snowman with dots as counters. Once they have finished, they can color the scarf and cut out the snowman and his pieces if it is not pre-cut. They may glue on the hat and sticks for arms.
Once all students have finished their snowman, each student will present their snowman to the class. They can introduce their number, tell the number in terms of 10, and then what number is before it and what number is after it. Example: My number is 13. It is made of 10 and 3. The number 12 is before it and the number 14 is after it.
Group: Once all of the presentations have been made, students should work together to try to put their snowmen in order. You can either have each student hold their snowman and move their body, or set them on a long table and move them (only catch being that they can only touch their own snowman. They can be hung or displayed once they are in order.
**Please Note: The snowman is on 8.5 x 14 paper!
