Improve math computation and placement skills. Carry out multiple operations to create and construct a tall building.
Pick three Number bricks
Use them to create a correct math equation if possible. If not possible, continue picking one brick at a time until a correct equation can be made from 3 or more bricks
Build the first floor of the building by correctly writing the equation on the base plate
Repeat above directions and include left-over bricks to build more floors for the building
How to prepare
2 base plates
All Number and math bricks
Number sign brick
Arrange all the numbers and math sign on a storage base plate to ease in finding characters.
Explain “Number sign brick placed once on the top left corner of the baseplate indicates all bricks are numbers.”
Ask “What is your strategy to build the highest building?”
Include math operation bricks
Add a timer
Make it a collaborative activity
Children will develop these holistic skills
- Stabilize knowledge of small numbers: Verbalize the decomposition of the number: e.g. "5 is 3 and 2"
- Engage in solitary play activities for an ability appropriate amount of time
- Share rules, roles and responsibilities
- Cooperate and share: Work together to facilitate individual learning
- Develop tactile tracking skills: Use both hands to track across broken lines on a page and identify space between lines
