Second graders in Ms. LoSardo’s class at South Bay Elementary School combined their math lesson with a snowman craft. Students built a snowman out of blocks of 100s, 10s and ones. After their snowmen were complete, the students counted the number of 100s, 10s and ones used to create them and converted it into an extended addition problem.
