You missed your ticket for the hottest show in town... The Number Museum! Today was the first showing of exhibits 1 - 5.
Students were put in pairs and allowed to use free exploration of the math manipulatives to create an exibit that represented a number 1 to 5. The kids got very creative with their work! I can't wait to see what they come up with tomorrow for numbers 6 through 10.
This is a great way to teach how to use our math tools (be sure to ask why they are "tools"), work in groups and control our voices (this is a skill that still needs some practice), while at the same time learning about numeracy!
Here is a little sneak peak into the Number Gallery!
