Sir Cumference and Lady Di have invited people from all the surrounding villages to come celebrate King Arthur's Birthday. The numbers are huge and the Knight and his Lady must be sure that they have enough food and other accommodations for all their guests. We will be reading the story Sir Cumference and All the King's Tens: A Math Adventure in order to determine how many guests plan to come as we explore large numbers and how the ten digits of our mathematical system can represent larger and larger numbers.

We will be doing whole group activities and then breaking up into small group rotation centers. Each of the activities will lead toward a growing understanding of large numbers, digits and place value.

Come join Sir Cumference and Lady Di as they plan for a birthday party event of tremendous proportions with guests in the tens, hundreds, thousands, and possibly even millions.
