Human Decimal Place Value Activity
In math class, all the concepts and skills we have been studying have been centered around decimal value place. However, since 3/4 of the 5th grade curriculum is geared more towards operations with decimals and fractions, it is crucial students have a strong foundation of decimals and fractions. During this particular day of Focus Group Rotation Day, the students participated in an activity reinforcing decimal place value called "Human Decimal Place Value Line Up." I would display a decimal in word form and students had to work within their groups to display the decimal in standard form on the place value chart. This activity was definitely a hit and had the students thinking and moving the entire lesson.
