- You will need base ten blocks, small squares of construction paper, and a list of several division problems for this center. You will also want to post directions for this activity. This is a perfect math center activity to be used after you have done a whole class introduction to the concept of division.
- The first step for each problem is to show the total number of pieces to be divided using the base ten blocks. For example, in the problem 567 / 44, they will show 5 hundreds, 6 tens, and 7 ones.
- Since these pieces need to be shared evenly among 4 sets, they will then lay out 4 pieces of construction paper.
- Starting with the large pieces first (hundreds in this case), they will distribute pieces among the four different sets. They will trade as necessary until they finish.
- They should record their answers above the division bracket in the correct place-value columns. They can simply write the remainder as R and then the number left over.
- Students should check their answers using multiplication.
