If you are teaching 3rd grade MATH in VIRGINIA and are in TEST PREP MODE or are preparing for EXPEDITED RETAKES this FUN and INTERACTIVE PLACE VALUE review will be a great addition to your classroom.
I currently use this activity in my classroom. I have run the first to papers front to back and give each student their own copy. The half sheet question pages, I cut in half and I place them around the classroom. The students go find their question and record the answer to that question number on the line above. When they have finished, they should be able to solve the riddle.
This is a great activity and the students love it because they are discussing math while they are able to be up and out of their seats moving around.
Another teacher uses this activity as a station/center and the students a math group work together to solve the problem.
Riddle answer: To become a smartie.
