# Explore Blocks Expanded, Expanded Form and more!

Thanksgiving Place Value Mystery Puzzles-I am always looking for activities to help me teach my 2nd graders about place value. These place value mystery pictures can be used in a math center or as a whole class activity. Students identify the numbers using: base 10 blocks, expanded form (i.e. 60+4) and word form i.e. (6 tens and 4 ones).

Counting Coins Task Cards- These task cards are a fun activity that your first graders can do to learn about counting money. The kids record the value of the coins that they count on a worksheet (can be graded for an assessment). You can use these in a math center or as a whole class money lesson.
