In this lesson, students will work with math manipulatives to understand that it takes 10 tenths of something to make one whole. They will use manipulatives with money (dimes), fractions (one tenth pieces), and base ten blocks (rods) to show different values. They will express values with combinations of the given manipulatives and draw their solutions. This is lesson one in a three lesson unit. Lesson two (HAPPY HUNDREDTHS) deals with hundredths and lesson three deals with combining and solving problems with tenths and hundredths (SHOPPING WITH TENTHS AND HUNDREDTHS).
