Are you looking for an engaging way for your students to practice building numbers with base ten blocks in a different way? This tens and ones math center will have your students building numbers in combinations of tens and ones that are not standard. Students will be asked to build numbers by using 14 ones or 25 tens. This encourages students to connect numbers with multiple representations.

How I Use this Activity

My students love to do this activity as a math center. I place the cards and base ten blocks in a bucket. When students are assigned to that center, they pull a card, build the number with he tens and ones and record their work on the recording sheet.
