I am trying my best to let my creative juices flow for 4th grade math. Sadly, my days are over of sorting apples and graphing our favorite apple color. The culture shock of 4th grade is still strong as ever, as I am teaching number forms in math. I was staring at my curriculum, trying to figure out how to make day four of reviewing "expanded form" more fun. Then I thought...pasta noodles kind of look like commas...
Here is my first attempt of doing a math craft in 4th grade. The students really enjoyed it, and I was able to put something on the bulletin board for math...so we both win, right?
I gave each student a colored square piece of paper. They had to write seven digits total, one on each paper. The directions where, each number had to be different.
Next they glued them down on their paper, creating a number in the millions. They left space for the "commas" to be glued down after.
The pasta noodles were the perfect addition to our number in standard form. It was such a treat not to have to give a lesson on how much glue to use!
Once the number and pasta was glued down, the students had to write the number they created in word form, standard form, and expanded form.
The students had fun making this math craft, and my first math bulletin board is complete! You can download the template for free in my TpT Store!
