Abstract:
Students will explore multi-digit numbers and the relationship between ones, tens and hundreds; a digit in one place is 10x the digit in the place to its right. Students will use their bodies to represent digits in multi-digit numbers up to the hundredths place and compare these numbers using <, =, >. Students will use their bodies as multi-digit numbers to add and subtract.

This resource is a multi-step lesson that focuses on understanding place value in a base-ten system. It addresses grades 2, 3 and 4 standards. This lesson can be a good hands-on, visual model to understand the meaning of "10x bigger" (for each place to the left). The beginning parts of the lesson would be good for grades 2, 3 teachers to introduce place value, the 10x bigger parts of the lesson are very visual for a grade 4 teacher to address this standard. In my opinion, though this lesson tries to do too much by also adding in adding and subtracting with place value.
