Why not give your students important practice using place value while celebrating Saint 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 smiling leprechaun ready for St Patrick's Day!
This file is also available as an 11x17 file so that one sheet can contain both the place value clues and the 100s chart. Please visit my store to get that file as well as see many more Math Mystery pictures for various themes, seasons, & holidays! Math Mystery pictures are available for practice in place value, multiplication, addition, subtraction, and more.
Finally, for just $2.00 more you can get my complete bundle of leprechaun mystery pictures, which includes addition as well as place value questions. This would be a great way to include multi-age and multi-ability classrooms. Everyone is working on the same image but solving problems at their level! Again it is available in my store.
