Place Value E XPLORATION S TATIONS

B AG O’ T HINGS  Choose a bag.  How many do you think you have? Do you think you have enough to fit in a ten frame?  Will you have some leftovers?  Use the ten frame and see how many items you have.  Record your findings.  Choose a different bag.  Do you think this bag has more/less than your other bag?

L OTS OF L INES  Choose a line card and record its letter in the box on the recording sheet.  Estimate the number of cubes it will take to fit along that line and record that number.  Place the cubes along the line until the line is covered.  Count the number of cubes and record the number and word.  Group the cubes into tens and ones and record.

M EASURE I T  Choose a piece of string.  Estimate how many tiles will it take to measure the length of the string.  Lay tiles along the string to determine the length.  Count and record the number word.  Then, group the tiles by tens and leftovers.  Write your findings on the recording sheet.

P APER S HAPES  Choose a shape and record its letter in the box on the recording sheet.  Estimate how many cubes you think it will take to fill the shape.  Record your estimate on the recording sheet.  Fill in the shape with cubes.  Count the number of cubes and write it on the recording sheet.  Group the counters into groups of tens and singles and record your tens and singles.

Y ARN S HAPES  Choose a long piece of string and record the number on the recording sheet.  Form the string into a closed shape.  Estimate the number of tens and ones it will take to fill in the shape and record.  Use cubes or tiles to fill the shape.  Group the counters into tens and singles and record.

B EAN C OLLAGE  Choose a bean collage. How many beans do you think are on the picture?  How many groups of 10 do you think there might be?  Use yarn to capture groups of ten bean.s  Record your groups of ten and leftovers on the recording sheet.  How many beans are on the collage? Record.  Choose another bean collage and repeat.
