Number Staircase

20 min1 participant

Read, understand and organize numbers according to rank. Create a strategy to arrange bricks and build a staircase.

Let's play!

  1. Find the number “1” brick in the bowl and begin to build a staircase using it as the first step.

  2. Continue building the staircase with the bricks from the box and the bowl. The top brick of each step must be the number brick equal to the number of bricks in the step.

  3. Check to be sure the steps are numbered “1” to “9”.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • All the bricks

  • 1 number sign brick

  • 1 bowl

Place 9 number bricks (”1” to “9”) in the bowl.

Place number sign in the top left corner of the base plate to indicate the bricks represent numbers.

Facilitation tips

  • Ask “What strategy did you use to build the staircase?”.

  • Ask “What could you find at the top of the staircase?”.

  • Propose collaboration.

Possible variations

  • Change the size of the staircase.

  • Begin with a number “9” step and build downward.

  • Use only number bricks requiring all bricks in each step to be the same number.
