Place Value Ice Cream Cone

Preparation
Print the tens and ones activities for kindergarten ice-cream puzzles on cardstock or use a¬†laminator¬†for added durability. Next cut out the puzzles and you’re all set!
I began by showing the kids what a ten and a one looked like using base ten blocks.

Ice cream math

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.

Tens and ones activities

Soon the kids were busy reading the numbers and finding the ice-cream scoops with the same amounts. Once all the Place Value Puzzles were made we checked over them together.
HINT: ¬†After you’ve finished the fun place value activities, another activity you could do with this resource, is ordering the cones from the smallest numbers to the largest numbers.
