 Interactive Color Tiles Color Tiles are used to make sets. Sets of a single color can represent a number, for example, here we se a group of 8 red Color Tiles. To the right of this group there is a group of 3 blue Color Tiles. The chart shows how many of each color and the total. Possible Topics: Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division Odd / Even Equivalency Interactive Color Tiles By tapping one of the mirror icons the playground is putting into a mode where pieces are automatically reflected as they are placed on the Playground. Here a design was produced using only warm colors. Make a design with warm and cool colors. Can you make a symmetrical design with an odd number of tiles of a particular color? Which letters of the alphabet can you make using the symmetry options. Explore and Document Activities at a variety of skill levels are also provided. Students are encouraged to document their discoveries in a journal. Here the students are asked to make a chart showing number sentences that describe combining sets of Color Tiles Perfect for Small Group instruction Environmentally Friendly Learning - (no need to photocopy activity pages for each student) A Student-Centered Approach to Learning
