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 Place Value 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.
