Need a simple yummy-themed activity to practice the Common Core standards of place value? “Number Scoops” gives students the opportunity to apply the skills that they have learned naming numbers in different ways. The activity can be done as a whole class, or as a small group center.
There are 24 different numbers included, one on each cone (twelve 2-digit numbers and twelve 3-digit numbers). Students match the four scoops to each corresponding cone. Skills practiced are:
- writing number words
- adding and subtracting ten
- expanded notation
After matching the scoops and cones, students can use the templates to create their own number scoops. A plan sheet and tracers are included, along with a photo of sample student-created number scoops.
Meets Common Core standards:
1.NBT.C5; 2.NBT.A3; 2.NBT.B8
