What resources can be used to teach place value?

Base-10 blocks can be used to help students understand the concepts behind place value. Base-10 blocks also can be used to explain decimals. Other place-value manipulatives are Unifix cubes, snap cubes, plastic clips, and bean sticks/beans. Practice with counting objects, on number lines, or on hundreds charts.

## Why do we teach place value?

How do you play the place value game?
