Happy holidays to all! Here's our present to you: A brand-new Brick Math Lesson of the Month!
For December, we have a lesson from Addition Using LEGO® Bricks. The lesson helps students learn two important concepts:
1. How to model place values with bricks
2. How to model addition using those place value models
This is a great way to teach students about place values. The lesson models the ones with 1x1 bricks, the tens with 1x2 bricks, and the hundreds with 1x3 bricks. Once students understand how to model numbers using place values, it’s a short step to learning how to add using place values.
The lesson of the month gives the step-by-step lesson from the Teacher’s Edition first, and then shows the corresponding pages in the Student Edition that students will complete as they learn.
