Lesson Planning of 4-Digit Numbers

Subject Mathematics

Students` Learning Outcomes

• Recognize that 1000 is one more than 999 and the first four digit numbers

• 1000 is the smallest 4-digit number.

Material / Resources

Writing board, chalk / marker, duster, textbook

Introduction

• Tell the students that a number with 3-digits is known as a 3-digit number.
• Tell them that in a 3-digit number we have 3 place values i.e. ones, tens and hundreds.
• Tell them that 1000 is a smallest 4 digit number.
• Ask them what comes after 999? (1000)

• Tell them that 1000 is one more than 999.

Development

Activity 1

• Make the following place value chart on the board.

• Ask the students what is written on the board? (999)
• What are 999? (3-digit number)
• What happens if we add 1 to 999?
• Take their feedback and encourage them.
• Make the following table on the board.

• Call students one by one to the board and instruct them to write 1, 10, 100, 1000 in the place value chart.
• Read the last number. (1000)

Activity 2

• Tell the students that 1000 is the smallest 4-digit number.
• Tell them that 10 hundreds make 1 thousand.
• Ten Hundreds = one thousands.

Activity 3

• Show the abacus to the students.

• Drop one bead in the thousands column.
• Explain the students that as there is one bead in the thousands rod, and there is no bead in ones, tens and hundreds rod. So it makes 1000.

Sum up / Conclusion

• 999 is the greatest 3-digit number.
• When we add 1 in 999, we get 1000.
• 1000 is the smallest 4-digit number because it has 4-digit.

Assessment

• 999 + 1 = ____________________________________
• Ask the students to put the following numbers in place value – chart 999 and 1000.
• Which number is greater out of 999 &1000?

• Ask the students to see 100 Rs note at home and draw its picture.

• If you have 10 hundred rupee notes what amount will they make?
