Creating a place value working model using colored paper is a fantastic idea to help visualize the concept of place value with ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands.

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

### Materials Needed:

- Colored paper (different colors for each place value)
- Scissors
- Glue
- Markers or a pen
- Cardboard or a sturdy base (optional)

**Prepare Strips:**- Cut four separate strips of colored paper, each representing a different place value (ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands).
- The length of each strip can vary, but it’s recommended to have a clear distinction between the lengths to represent the magnitude.

**Label the Strips:**- On each strip, label the place value it represents. For example, write “Ones” on the shortest strip, “Tens” on the next, “Hundreds” on the next, and “Thousands” on the longest.

**Number Boxes:**- Cut small squares from colored paper to create number boxes.
- Write numbers on each box, corresponding to the place value it represents. For example, on the “Ones” strip, place number boxes with single-digit numbers, on the “Tens” strip, use two-digit numbers, and so on.

**Assembly:**- Arrange the strips side by side on a flat surface or glue them onto a cardboard base.
- Make sure the strips are aligned at one end, creating a tiered effect.
- Attach the number boxes to the appropriate strips, ensuring they are visually clear and demonstrate the concept of place value.

This hands-on and visually appealing model will serve as an excellent educational tool to demonstrate the hierarchical nature of place value in a number.
