Place Value Pizzazz!

Hello Everyone!
We will begin a math unit this coming week on place value.  Our school district offered a good professional development course this summer using the First Steps in Mathematics as a resource.  In that resource, the authors discuss the fact that most kids understand the "places" in place value but sometimes see the numbers in those places as simple numbers.  A "7" in the tens place should be realized as 70, not just a 7 in the tens place. This little whole group lesson and math tub activity is easy to set up and will give kids the understanding.  You can use it as an intro to place value or as a diagnostic tool.
Here are a few pics.
