Are you looking for a fun activity to engage your upper elementary or middle school students while building a deeper understanding of place value?
Included in this product is a presentation that will give your students a brief introduction to binary coding. This presentation will guide your students through an understanding of what binary numbers are, and will help them make connections between base-2 and base-10.
In addition to the presentation, there are 4 ready to print pages for students to practice turning a Base-10 number into Base-2, and vice versa.
I personally feel that the best part of this activity is that students gain a TRUE understanding of what place value is. AND this is happening all while they are so excited because of the final product they get to create.
