This resource includes 40 four-piece place value puzzles. Students will match the standard form, word form, expanded form, and a base ten block representation of each number. The first 20 puzzle pieces feature 2-digit numbers. The second set of 20 features 3-digit numbers. Use the two sets to differentiate or at different points in your place value unit.
Low on colored ink? No problem! Both sets are included in color and black and white. The black and white set is also great to copy and send home for practice.
To prolong their use, I recommend laminating these cards or printing them on sturdy card-stock before cutting them apart along the solid lines.
You can make this resource self-checking by placing matching colored dots or stickers on the back of the puzzle pieces. If you would like a written record of your students’ work, a recording sheet option is also included.
This activity addresses the following Common Core Standards:
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.NBT.A.1: Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.NBT.A.3: Read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
