Magnets + Math = Much Loved Lesson

Thursday, October 09, 2014

I was at the Dollar Store picking up some prizes for my husband's classroom store last night when these number magnets caught my eye.  I bought a few cookie sheets while I was there & just like that I had a math lesson ready to go.  I was a little worried that my Grade 5 students would think the lesson was a little "babyish", but they surprised me.  Everyone made a positive comment about it!  The lesson was a review on rounding.  I gave the students a number, and they used the magnets to show the number rounded to the nearest 10, 100, or 1 000.
