Get your class engaged with this hands-on base-ten activity for learning about place value for the hundreds, ten, and ones (units) places.

#### Materials for the Butterfly Base Ten Manipulatives

• Paper
• Laminating Supplies
• Paper Cutter
• Scissors
• Tape

This resource has identical content to my Chicken Life Cycle Base-Ten Manipulatives and Plant Life Cycle Base-Ten Manipulatives. The only difference is the theme.

Two levels are included: Ten & Ones (units) Hundreds, Tens and & Ones (units)

This resource can be used as a whole-class activity or a center activity.

Students will draw one card from each container: hundreds, tens, and ones (or tens and ones alone, depending on the level you are teaching) and demonstrate the number with the farm-themed base-ten blocks.

For added fun, you can do this on a “sticky wall” which is simply contact paper taped to the wall with the sticky side facing out. Otherwise, you can simply do this on a table or the floor.

I have also included cloud and sun faces to create crowns while using this as a whole class activity. See the preview for a comprehensive view of what is included.

There are 32 cards for each level of learning. (For the hundreds a set of 8 cards is included for numbers like 100, 200, 300, so that students can visualize these numbers.)
