Bell Work

Place Value with Calculators

Everyone will need calculators for this bell work. You will need to have instructions posted on the board as well. Instruct your kids to punch a # into the calculator and decide what its place value is. They will then punch in another # and discuss with their group/table what happened to the place value of the first #. Have them continue to do this through several place values.
