What does 10 000 look like?

Today we explored with our group what ten thousand looks like?
What a challenge it is to actually visualise what 10 000 of something looks like.
Each group had something different to complete their task with.
Soup mix, counters, tiny teddies, balls and dried peas were used.
We thought of many different ways to tackle our task with our group.
