Remember these ice cream cones? We shared how to make them not very long ago. Besides being very cute and super easy to make, they are a learning tool, too. We used them in a creative summer activity to practice some second grade math skills, specifically adding place value to two and three digit numbers.
Place Value Math with Bean Bags
- Add single or double numbers by writing different numbers on the circles.
- Each color of the ice cream cones indicates a different number. Kids can add together numbers based on the color that hits a target.
- Add near doubles with the bean bags.
- Add 100’s up to 1,000.
