This is part 2 of a two part post on Hundred Chart Activities. If you have read part 1 of the post, welcome back. If this is your first post with me I would like to welcome you.
There are many ways to use hundreds charts, below are 3 additional ideas:
The Hundreds Chart puzzle is any hundreds chart that you cut up into sections for the students to put back together, like the example above.Organizing the Hundreds Chart
- Pick a hundreds chart.
- Cut up the hundreds chart into 5 – 8 different sections.
- Place the cut up sections into a ziplock bag for easy storage and organization.
Allow the students time to review the hundreds chart prior to it being cut up. Next, present the different pieces to the students. Tell students that you have cut up the hundreds chart and you need help putting the chart back together. Allow the students to work with partners to put the pieces of the hundred chart puzzle back together. As the students put the pieces back together consider asking the following guiding questions:
- Explain why you placed that section next to the other section.
- How do you know this is correct?
- What did you learn about numbers as a result of this activity?
Look at the pictures below for help.
Playing this game allows the students to understand the number sequence using the hundreds chart.
Partner two students to play Race to 100. Provide each player with a hundreds chart and a game piece (ie. counting chip). The two students should also share one number cube. Each player will place their game piece on the smallest number of their hundreds chart (ie. Number 1). They will take turns rolling the number cube and moving their game piece based on the number rolled. For example, if the student rolls a 2 then they will advance 2 spaces on the hundreds chart. The students will take turns rolling the number cube and advancing their game piece. The first player to land on 100 is the winner of the game.Click on the pictures for a FREE 100’s and 120’s chart.
