Skeleton Place Value


The printable comes with two pages. One page has coffins and one page has tombstones to be used to create a double digit number. It is necessary to cut out the tombstones for this activity.

To play, you need some Q-tips (or popsicle sticks) for bones. Make groups of ten bones and tie them together with a string or mini rubber band. You will also need 9 single bones.

Once you are set up, you can play two ways:

1) Show your child a double digit number using the tombstones. Instruct them to show the correct place value representation using their bones and coffins.

2) Show your child a group of bones in the coffins and have them pick out the corresponding tombstones to represent the double digit number.

Refer to the above picture for clarification!
