This week the class explored money through a variety of different activities. Students counted the value of different coins by applying the strategies of counting on and skip-counting from the coin of greatest value by first arranging the coins in order. We also learned that the same amount of money can be represented in different combinations of coins.

Students learned to use objects to measure length. They used the term unit to describe length. This prepares them to use standard units in higher grades. The class worked to measure things in the classroom with paper clips and craft sticks. Students found that more paper clips than craft sticks are required because paper clips are shorter than craft sticks.
