Hand a student a tenths block. Have the student figure out where to put the tenths block on the mat. Have the student figure out how the numerals at the top of the mat change after one tenth has been added to the tenths place. Continue to give the student tenths until there are ten tenths blocks. Ask them, “What happens to the ones place? What happens to the tenths place?” Modify the activity and repeat by subtracting hundreds.
