This resource has identical content to my Plant Base-Ten Activities and my Butterfly Base-Ten Activities. The only difference is the theme. The Butterfly Base-Ten Activities also includes numbers to the thousands place.
Two levels of Base Ten Manipulatives Chicken Life Cycle 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.
There are 32 cards for each level of learning. (For the hundreds a set of 8 cards are included for numbers like 100, 200, 300, so that students can visualize these numbers.) This resource can be used as a whole-class activity or a center activity.
