Print the ice-cream puzzles on cardstock or use a laminator for added durability. Next cut out the puzzles and you're all set!

To Play
I began by showing the kids what a ten and a one looked like using base ten blocks

I explained that one ten is made up of ten cubes and that's why it is called a ten. After that I spread out the place value ice-creams and showed the kids how to find a matching pair. 

Soon the kids were busy reading the numbers and finding the ice-cream scoops with the same amounts. Once all the puzzles were made we checked over them together. 

HINT:  Another activity you could do with this resource, is ordering the cones from the smallest numbers to the largest numbers.
