On Friday we learned how to play the Trading Game. It is a game where we can build and rename numbers using MAB material. Every time you roll the dice, you add that number of ones to the last column. When you have ten ones you trade it for a ten (one long).
These are some important things we needed to know. Once we had 10 ones, we could trade them for a ten (long). When we had 10 tens then we could trade them for a hundred(Flat). Once you have 10 hundreds, we could trade them for a thousand (cube). We are going to play this game again this coming week and maybe we can trade some hundreds for thousands.
Here we are in action.
