Lower Elementary starts with a BANG!

Lower Elementary starts with a BANG!

The Lower Elementary class started our cultural studies with the Big Bang!  We prepared for this by introducing children to large numbers through concrete materials. First, I brought representations of ten thousand, a hundred thousand, and a million into the classroom.  Next, I spray painted the outlines of a million, ten million, a hundred million, and a billion onto the grass in the playground.
