Why not give your students important practice using place value while celebrating a St. Patrick's Day?
In this activity the students will count collections of place value blocks and then color their answer with a corresponding color. It is like a color by numbers only using place value blocks and a 100s chart.
Place value is a very important concept for primary children to work on. Being able to relate numbers to corresponding images, such as place value blocks, will greatly help them with their addition and subtraction work, especially when they start working with two digit numbers.
This file contains three pages:
1) A blank 100s chart
2) A page of place value images for the students to count.
3) An answer key showing the final image.
The final image your students will create is a rainbow flowing into a pot of gold!
There are many great St. Patrick's Day books available that would be a great match with this lesson including:
1) The Leprechaun Who Lost His Rainbow by Sean Callahan
2) That's What Leprechauns Do by Eve Bunting
3) Ten Lucky Leprechauns by Kathryn Heling
This file is also available as an 11x17 file
