Our Introduction to Place Value lesson plan teaches students to the various ways to group numbers. The lesson uses visual representations to show students how to move numbers into groups of ten, and how the leftover numbers go into the ones place. During this lesson, students are asked to do various activities that involve them identifying place values and using them to understand how numbers relate to one another. Students are also asked to complete practice problems on their own.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent the tens and ones.
