Who doesn't love a hands-on and DELICIOUS activity?!
In this activity, your students have a LOT to do. They are to use their food items (Rice Krispy treats, Twizzlers, and Dots) to make something and then figure out how many hundreds, tens, and ones there are. The students also have to write their number in standard form and expanded form. There is a place to reflect and sketch.
I have included several ways to extend this lesson to include nonfiction reading and writing as well as a scoot game.
Some extensions include:
-Read All About It: Photograph and print the creation and label it. Then write all about it.
-What's The Value: Have the students do a museum walk and guess the value of the sculptures, scoot style.
This activity covers the following standards:
2NBT1: Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones.
2NBT3: Read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
