Rating

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.

Exploring Place Value -- Race the Clock!
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Students will explore the concepts of place value using their bodies as tools. They will time themselves performing various kinesthetic tasks like jumping jacks and sit ups and use the numbers that they record from these activities in their exploration. Working in groups, they will practice adding and subtracting and comparing numbers. They will also come up with creative ways to represent numbers using the properties of operation and the rules of place value.

Graphing Linear Equations - Full Body Style
Rating

Rebecca Davis sets up a coordinate plane on the floor of her classroom. Groups of 3 or 4 students are assigned equations in slope-intercept form and graph them using their bodies on the giant coordinate plane. As extensions, Ms. Davis changes the slope or y-intercept of the original equation and makes the activity into a race.

Students will use ratios to demonstrate the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations. Students will solve problems using a cooperative, kinesthetic activity in which they will create a ratio table, then graph proportional relationships with their bodies to demonstrate that the ratio (or rate) is the slope that will always pass through the origin.
