The T-Shirt Factory Place Value, Addition, and Subtraction Day 1: Unitizing and Equivalence

This session begins with the story of Grandma Eudora's T-Shirt Factory. Grandma Eudora is part of the Masloppy family - a large, endearing family that finds it difficult to keep track of things. One of the children decides to sort, organize, and take inventory of things in the house, including Uncle Lloyd's t-shirts, which he arranges in rolls with rubber bands. One day as Uncle Lloyd is doing the laundry, Itchy, the family dog, knocks over a bottle of bleach. The result of his mishap is colorful tie-dyed t-shirts, which Grandma begins to sell in a highly successful business - Grandma Eudora's T-Shirt Factory. The idea of the t-shirt factory is brought to the classroom as a simulation. Children work in groups (companies with factories) making and selling t-shirts and organizing their warehouses. The main focus of the unit is place value, regrouping, equivalence, and the regrouping of the inventory.
