For this activity students will use sticks and leaves to help them understand place value and partition different numbers. Before this activity students need to have had an input into how to partition numbers.

Give students the correct worksheet (depending on ability), a clipboard, and a pencil. Explain that they will be partitioning numbers using stones, sticks and leaves to help them.

Explain that stones are worth 100, sticks are worth 10, and leaves are worth 1. They must collect a number card and find the appropriate number and type of stones, sticks, and leaves to create the number. For example, 132 would be 1 stone, 3 sticks, and 2 leaves.

Once they’ve collected the correct amount, they can fill in their sheet and then collect another card. This activity is great done both individually and in pairs.
