Building Math Skills One Bean at a Time

Fourth graders are building their math skills!

Students worked on bundling beans into different sized cups that represented ones, tens, hundreds and thousands.

After the exercise, students shared that bundling & using a base ten system made it easier for them to count large numbers!

Way to go, fourth graders!
