Place value cakes are a fun way to learn place value and allow students to understand numbers are made up of parts.
Makes a great whole class or learning centre activity!
Expose students to the concept that numbers are made up of ingredients. The ingredients for the number 58 are 50 and 8 or could also be said as 5 tens and 8 ones. Get students to tell you the ingredients for a variety of numbers using the idea of making a cake.
Then use this set for a whole class game (24 cakes) where students are given the ‘icing’ (whole number) and must find the ingredients which are spread out on the floor or a table. Prepare this activity by printing, laminating and then cutting each cake into 3 pieces.
For a follow-up lesson, get students to make up their own cakes. The cupcakes can also be used as a group or independent activity and makes for a quick and fun assessment strategy.
