Place value butterfly puzzle math station where students use 86 mini task cards to identify and color by number on a 100 chart that are represented by base 10 blocks OR simply numbers! 2 versions included for easy differentiation!

This is a fantastic, fun way to get students to practice identifying the base 10 representation of dozens of numbers in one sitting in a fun way!

You can also simply use the numbers only cards (entire set of each type are included) for kids who you want to look at the number and color it on their chart, instead of having to decipher the number in base ten.

Save a bunch by getting this in the


I also have this in Spanish!

When they're all done, their hundreds chart will reveal a colorful butterfly!

Watch a video of this puzzle being done with the place value cards here (number only cards for each number also available so you can JUST do the numbers instead of the base 10 blocks):

Simply print, cut out, and throw these cards in a baggie and it's an instant math station! These are a perfect way to keep your students super engaged and quiet while practicing an important skill in a fun way so you can pull math groups or whatever you need to do.

These are also great for fast finishers! "You're done? Go grab a bag and a 100 chart!"

ADDED: I added a basic numbers version for lower students or for an additional number sense activity where each card has the number written on it instead of place value blocks.

ADDED: I also added student friendly directions to make this center more independent.
