This is great activity to strengthen students’ understanding of place value. It follows the CCSS for 1st grade 1.NBT.B.2, but is a wonderful review for the beginning of 2nd grade!
This product includes 4 sets of place value puzzles, with numbers 10-100 (ten groups of ten). You will want to print each set of puzzles on different colored paper. I have also put different shapes on each of the puzzle pieces in the different sets... Just incase they get a little mixed up :) These work great as quick, easy rotating stations. Students are to find the number in standard form and match it to the puzzle pieces with the same number of base ten blocks and expanded form model. Each set includes 11 puzzles and each puzzle has 3 pieces.
There are also practice worksheets for students to complete after doing the puzzles. I have found this will help keep them accountable for finishing the puzzles.
Answer Keys are included.
