This a fun activity to practice decomposing numbers and reinforces the concept that the two digits of a two digit number represent amounts of tens and ones using ice cream puzzles.
Directions: Copy on card stock and laminate. Cut on lines or around each piece and store in Ziplocs. Have students put puzzles together by matching numbers on the cherries to groups of tens on the ice cream and extra ones on the cones.
Recording sheet included for easy check of understanding.
Great for an individual, with a partner or at a center.
