Purpose: The overarching goal of this lesson is to review place value with the students. This will get them into the math mode and review what they learned from fifth grade last year. This fits into the ‘bigger picture’ because it will help all students to get a sense of big and small numbers, how they are ordered, and how to read the numbers. This lesson is a perfect refresher to the beginning of the year.
Objectives: As a result of this lesson:
• Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of place value to billions and thousandths.
• Students will be able to compare and order integers using <, >, or =.
• Students will be able to estimate results of computations and round numbers to the nearest ten, hundred, thousand, etc…
• Students will be able to explain why a number is rounded up or down.
