Build An Abacus and Learn to Use It

Pupils study the abacus as a way to represent whole numbers and build their own. They build an abacus using beads, pipe cleaners, and cardboard and solve problems using the fewest beads. As a reflection, they write in their notebooks how they can use abacuses in the future to represent whole numbers.
