This is a great way to help students understand tenths and hundredths and how small they are compared to 1 whole.

Ask student to create a model of 1 MAB with Plasticine. With a plastic knife, cut it into tenths. Then discuss the concept of hundredths and how this would look. Ask them to make 1 hundredth by cutting one tenth into ten equal pieces.
