This PowerPoint addresses both CCSS & Texas TEKS place value standards. It uses population census data and is filled with symbols from multiple states in the USA. Students will be engaged in writing large whole numbers in multiple forms, as well as using them in problem solving. It can be used as a mini-lesson, cooperative learning activity, reteach or a mini-assessment. The thumbnail pictures show the slides with answers included. All slides include animation that allows the teacher to stop before answers are given.
