When cutting them out, I found it easiest to use a paper trimmer. I had the center ready to go in no time!
The set contains 12 different puzzles, covering random numbers from 1-100. Each puzzle contains two pieces: one piece has the number written out and the other piece has place value clipart representing the corresponding number.
Christmas Place Value Puzzles
Students started the activity by placing all of the puzzle pieces on a table.
They chose the number puzzle piece first.
This student chose the puzzle piece with the number “29” on it.
Students then sorted through all of the pieces, trying to find the picture that had the place value clipart representing number 29.
When they found it, they placed the card next to the number piece.
When children were done, they pushed the puzzle to the side and continued until all puzzle pieces had been paired.
If your students need a bit more of a challenge, you can have them choose the place value puzzle piece first. This will require them to figure out the answer prior to finding the number.
Once students are finished, they can sort the puzzles in numerical order – either from lowest to highest or highest to lowest. The extra step is a great extension if time allows.
