Reviewer Comments:

This is a well-organized lesson plan that includes a lesson framework, a presentation, tiered practice problems, a related word problem, and a hands-on activity. It also has a good graphic organizer to help students remember place value. There is no answer key provided. In addition, users must download http://www2.smarttech.com/st/en-US/Support/Downloads/Notebook+IV/ so that they can open the “Notebook” presentation. This lesson can be used in upper elementary classrooms.
