This power-point presentation is a short story about a baker who sells his cookies. The cookies are grouped in packages, boxes, and truck loads. Each can be represented with base ten blocks to model decimal place value based upon a whole. Teachers use the story and the slides to demonstrate the place value of decimals while using base 10 blocks to model the story. Guided practice is included in the power-point lesson.
