**Lesson Plan of Place Value of Numbers up to 6-digit Numbers**

**Subject Mathematics**

**Grade III**

**Students` learning Outcomes**

- Identify the place values of numbers up to 6-digit numbers.

**Information for Teachers**

- Place value of any digit in any number is the value of the place that a digit occupies in a number.

- 6-digit number has six digits, for example:

- The sixth digit reading from right to left shows hundreds thousands place.
- While teaching the lesson, also consult textbook where and when applicable.

**Material / Resources**

Writing board, chalk/marker, duster, textbook

**Introduction**

- Ask the students: what is the greatest 5-digit number?
- After taking their responses write the greatest 5-digit number (99999) on the board.
- Ask them if we add 1 into this number, i.e. (99999+1) what will be the answer?
- After taking their responses, tell that we will get 100000.
- It has 6-digits and it is called the smallest 6-digit number.

- Demonstrate to the students; that how they can construct place value of 6-digit numbers to find a place value of any number.

- Tell the students that from reading right to left, first place is ones, second is tens, third is hundreds, fourth is thousands, fifth is ten thousands and sixth is hundred thousand.
- With the help of place value table, we can find the place value of any umber.

**Development**

**Activity 1**

- Write a 6-digit number on the board, for example :

- Demonstrate to the students that how they will construct place value chart of this number.

- Ask the students to construct the place value chart for the following numbers.

**Activity 2**

- Demonstrate to the students how they will find the place value of a specific digit in a number.
- For example:
- Ask the students to tell the place value of 5 in the number 4
__5__6,321. - Tell the students that first we have to construct the place value chart.

- Ask the students to tell the place value of 5 from the chart.
- After taking their responses, tell that the place value of 5 from right is ten thousands.
- Write the following numbers on the board and ask the students to identify the place value of underlined digits.

Activity 3

- Demonstrate to the students how they will write a 6-digit number in words using place value chart.

- Tell the students to first write hundred thousand e.g. four hundred thousand. Then write ten thousand e.g. five ten thousand. After that write thousand e.g. one thousand and then write tens e.g. two tens. At the end write ones e.g. nine ones.
- Then write the numbers and words on the board.
- Ask the students to write following words in numbers.

**Sum up / Conclusion**

- The place value of a 6-digit number is:

- In this chart, from right to left, first place is ones, second is tens, third is hundred, fourth is thousand, and fifth is ten thousand and sixth is hundred thousand.

**Assessment**

- Write the following numbers on the board and ask the students to identify the place value of encircled numbers.

**Follow up**

- Ask the students to make a poster of;
- Greatest 2-digit, 3-digit, 4-digit, 5-digit and 6-digit numbers.
- Smallest 2-digit, 3-digit, 4-digit, 5-digit and 6-digit numbers.
- Ask the students to solve the questions given in their textbook.
