Skills: Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, Counting to 100

Pre-Activity:

1. What is a �Birds-Eye-View�?

2. What strategies can you use to make this activity easier?

3. How might your final result be different from your neighbors?

Math:

1. How many �ones� are in 100? ___________

2. How many �fives� are in 100? ___________

3. How many �tens� are in 100? ____________

4. How many different ways can you get 100?

Directions:

1. Build a creation, that when viewed from above, will show exactly 100 LEGO Dots. You cannot have any more or any less than 100 Dots.

2. You may be as creative as you like, but you may only use the material that is in your yellow mini simple machine set

(or non electric elements of a LEGO Education set).

3. Whenever you are finished with your creation, you need to take a picture of it and paste it in the box below. Note: Picture is �Birds-Eye-View� only!

Digital Picture:

Extension:

1. How much does your creation weigh? _____________________

Discussion:

1. What was the hardest part of this activity?

2. Did you find it difficult to keep count of all of the dots?

M.S.2.1

Number and Operations Through communication, representation,
reasoning and proof, problem solving, and making connections within and
beyond the field of mathematics, students will

� demonstrate understanding
of numbers, ways of representing numbers, and relationships among numbers
and number systems,

� demonstrate meanings
of operations and how they relate to one another, and

� compute fluently
and make reasonable estimates.

M.S.2.3

Geometry Through communication, representation, reasoning and
proof, problem solving, and making connections within and beyond the field
of mathematics, students will

� analyze characteristics
and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop
mathematical arguments about geometric relationships,

� specify locations
and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other
representational systems,

� apply transformations
and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations, and

� solve problems using
visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling.
