This is a fun Thanksgiving activity for place value practice! In this activity, students first solve place value and addition problems. There are three versions:
The easiest are problems in this format: __ tens __ ones (ex. 6 tens 7 ones = 67).
The next version has some of the __ tens __ ones problems, as well as expanded notation (60 + 7), using doubles, adding 10 (57 + 10).
The first two versions use the 1-120 number chart.
3. The more challenging version uses a number chart ranging from 351-470. It has problems such as these: 4 hundreds 6 tens 7 ones, 400 + 60 + 7, 367 + 100, 457 + 10.
For all versions, students then color in these numbers on the appropriate chart to discover the mystery picture. All three versions have the same picture. The picture is a cute turkey with yellow and orange tail feathers and a wattle.
Answer keys are included for all versions.
Updated November 2014 to add an option to print the student's problems on two pages, allowing for a larger font size. The original one page version is still included also.
Common Core for Second Grade used in this activity: CCSS.MC2.NBTB.5 Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction. 2.NBT.3 Read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. 2.NBT.8 Mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100–900.
