This interactive SMARTnotebook helps kids understand our base ten system in a number sense way. Students use base 10 patterns to help them notice how each time a number is multiplied by 10, it moves over a place value. They also inquire about and find a pattern that helps them notice how many tens, hundreds, thousands are in an entire number. Finally, they realize how many times bigger the hundreds place is than the ones place, etc. It's a great introduction to place value and includes printable resources for the kids to explore with. Students make great number sense connections to place value in this lesson.
This lesson includes 2-3 days worth of mini-lessons plus an activity for kids to explore.
