Base-Ten Manipulatives Chicken Life Cycle


Get your class engaged with this hands-on base-ten activity for learning about place value for the hundreds, ten, and ones (units) places.

Two levels are included:
Ten & Ones (units)
Hundreds, Tens and & Ones (units)

This resource can be used as a whole-class activity or a center activity.

Students will draw one card from each container: hundreds, tens, and ones (or tens and ones alone, depending on the level you are teaching) and demonstrate the number with the farm-themed base-ten blocks.

For added fun, you can do this on a “sticky wall” which is simply contact paper taped to the wall with the sticky side facing out. Otherwise, you can simply do this on a table or the floor.

I have also included chicken and hen faces to create crowns while using this as a whole class activity.

See the preview for a comprehensive view of what is included. Please note: The preview does not show all of the center cards. There are 32 cards for each level of learning. (For the hundreds a set of 8 cards is included for numbers like 100, 200, 300, so that students can visualize these numbers.)
