Place Value through Hundreds


Place Value through Hundreds introduces students to the hundreds place value. Students will learn how to identify the place value of specific digits. They will learn to distinguish between digits and numbers as well. They will use base ten blocks and a place value chart as tools to help them figure out the problems.

The “Options for Lesson” section on the classroom procedure page contains a couple of alternatives that you might want to include in your lesson. If you have some advanced students, for example, you could have them work on digits in the thousands place. For struggling students, you can have a hundreds chart available to assist them.

What our Place Value through Hundreds lesson plan includes

Lesson Objectives and Overview: Place Value through Hundreds teaches students how to identify values up to the hundreds place. Students will learn to distinguish between numbers and digits. They will also be able to use a chart and base ten blocks. By the end of the lesson, they will be able to identify these place values easily.

There is only one page of instructional content in this lesson. The lesson presents the lesson concept clearly and concisely. It first defines place value as the value that a digit (0-9) has based on its position in a number. It discusses that there are several tools students can use to represent place values. This is where students will learn about the chart.

Students will next learn how to use base ten blocks for this purpose. They will learn how to represent the ones, tens, and hundreds places with these blocks. The lesson specifies that students can use dots for ones, lines for tens, and large squares for hundreds when they are drawing base ten blocks as visuals.


Students will work in partners for the activity. There are two problems for them to solve together. They will use both a place value chart and base ten blocks to show their answer.


The practice worksheet has two sections. For the first part, students will review a picture of base ten blocks that represent a number. Then they will decide and write where each digit belongs in the given spaces. They will then answer the same questions for a new number, but that number will not have a picture to assist them. Finally, they will draw base ten blocks that represent another number.


Similar to the practice worksheet, the homework assignment requires students to represent numbers using both base ten blocks and a chart. There are also three prompts that require them to write a number that contains a digit in a certain place.
