Bug Houses!

Students made bug houses out of base ten blocks!

The Task: Students could choose up to 16 base ten blocks to construct a bug house but only 3 could be flats (groups of 100). This amount was doubled if the student chose to work with a partner. Afterwards, students counted the value of the blocks. The value became the address of the bug house. Finally students disassembled their bug houses onto a 100s mat to recount the value of the blocks.
