Base 10 Blocks

A collection of Base 10 Block activities to use when teaching a range of mathematical concepts. Base Ten Blocks provide hands-on ways to learn place value, number concepts, operations, measurement, and much more! They also help students physically represent what they’re learning so they can develop a deeper understanding of the meaning of each concept. Base 10 blocks provide a spatial model of our base 10 number system. The smallest blocks are called units and we commonly use these to represent ones. The long, narrow blocks are called rods and are typically used to represent tens. The flat, square blocks are called flats and are commonly used to represent hundreds. And finally, the largest block is called a cube. We typically use the cube to represent thousands.
