Our Place Value System lesson plan enables students to read and write numbers using place values with rational numbers. During this lesson, students are asked to complete practice problems with and without decimals. Students are also asked to use their creativity to create and decorate a page with a number on it that is then pinned to their shirts; the teacher then arranges them in random order and places the decimal point at different points in the line of students to change the place value and leads a discussion about how the decimal functions in the number.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to read and write numbers using place values with rational numbers.
