A 100 chart (or "hundreds chart") is a 10 by 10 grid that helps show connections between numbers. You can use this chart to talk about patterns in our base ten number system, and to explore concepts like skip counting and adding two-digit numbers.
There are many fun ways to use a 100 chart:
Use a small toy or rock to jump along the numbers as you count.
If you have access to a plastic sleeve and dry erase marker, have fun highlighting patterns that you find in the chart.
For example: The numbers in each row increase by 1
(1, 2, 3...), while the numbers in each column increase by 10 and end in the same digit (5, 15, 25...).
Make a game of skip counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s, or use as a visual tool to practice addition!
