What does 50 look like? What does 100 look like? Students get to find out when they make these prickly porcupines out of play dough and either toothpicks or spaghetti! This activity teaches several standards: number & operations, problem solving, reasoning & proof, communication, connections, representation, etc. Although the lesson idea is written for grades 2 to 4, the activity could easily be adapted for younger grades if needed. If your students need to learn what 15/25 looks like, use 15/25 toothpicks...etc.
