## How Much, How Many, How Far, How Heavy, How Long, How Tall is 1000?

##### Australian Curriculum:  Description

This book gives a huge variety of contexts to the number one thousand. As the title describes, they explore collections, quantities, distances, weight, length and height as the children in the story try to understand how ‘big’ one thousand really is.

##### Teaching ideas
(1) Lots and lots of hands-on experience helps students understand large numbers. Use pasta, coins, beads, counters, other manipulatives; (2) using technology students could do a line of 25 'o', then copy and paste it four times to show an array of 100; (3) wrapping paper and patterned fabrics can be used to circle collections too.

## The Phantom Tollbooth

##### Teaching ideas
Explore the mathematical language and concepts. Eg. Ensuring the world once again has rhyme and reason --> explore the concept of averaging as a 'levelling' process
