100 Chart Mystery Picture Puzzle

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 8 pages | Years: P - 1

Practise identifying numbers within 100 with this set of 44 number cards and hundreds board.

Colour-by-Numbers with Our Counting to 100 Game!

We paired numbers, colouring, and puzzle-solving in a single activity that lets students show they can count up to 100!

Players will need red, yellow and blue coloring utensils or manipulatives (counters, cubes, bears, etc.). They will choose a number card and identify it. Then, they will find the matching number on the 100 board and colour/cover it to solve the puzzle. 

An answer key is included for students to self-check their work. 

PLUS Even More Counting to 100 Games

We created this activity as an independent practice activity to celebrate the 100th day of school. We also suggest using it to reinforce your guided group and full-class lessons in the following ways: 

🛴 Scoot! Active Game

Place all 44 number cards around the room and give each student a hundreds board recording sheet. Assign students or pairs to a starting point card. Give students time to review the card and record their answer in the corresponding space on their paper. Students will rotate to the next card when you say, “SCOOT!” Continue in this manner until students return to their starting point. 

🖍️ Numbers Listening Assessment

Instead of showing students the cards, read the numbers to students so they can practice their auditory and visual number identification skills. Provide students with a recording sheet. Read the number cards aloud and give students time to locate the matching number on their recording sheet, shading it in with a pencil. Students who correctly identify all numbers should uncover the hidden pattern at the end.  

🃏 Play Cards

Print 2 sets of numbers cards. Students can practice number identification within 100 by playing games like Match It, Go Fish, or Snap (to name a few). 

Support students who need help counting to 100 by using visual references, like a classroom hundreds board or their desk plate.

Challenge students to order the number cards from smallest to biggest.

Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Print on thick card for durability and longevity. Make photocopies of the blank hundreds board for students, and place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for your maths rotations

Sustainability Tip: Print a few recording sheets on thick card and slip them into dry-erase sleeves. Students can record their answers with dry-erase markers, then erase and reuse.
