The Common Core and other rigorous standards clearly want students to be able to work flexibly with large numbers. This set of 4 "investigations" help build number sense and an understanding of how our base 10 system works. Each activity can be done as whole class “interactive demonstrations” or in small groups.
Each also has a follow up independent practice activity that can be used as homework, review, or even as a “quick quiz” to check understanding.
They are designed to be low ink for easy copying and are very "hands on" for students!
These are based off of the Common Core Standards for 4th grade…3rd grade leads to these and 5th grade continues! All are based on “Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers”.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.A.1 Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.A.2 Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NBT.A.3 Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
These 5 activities (4 "lessons" and 1 game) are geared toward teaching and/or reviewing large number concepts and sequencing including...
-Comparing expanded, “number names” and numerals
