  • Use in a homework packet to expand what kids have learned about graphing ordered pairs in class
  • A good addition to a math assessment or quiz

  • Each illustration is easy to make out before kids do much graphing, which might discourage them from working out each coordinate
Pros

  • A cute way to reinforce both place value and graphing
  • Two lessons focus on both fractions and decimals
Cons

  • None
