Square Roots using the Montessori Peg Board
The Montessori Peg Board can be used for a number of lessons. Today, we used it to model finding square roots of numbers. The students built "squares" of numbers to discover what it's square root would be. Reading the value of the beads along the bottom of the square will give you the answer.
