Decimals with Base-10 Blocks to the Tenths and Hundredths | Digital Visual Models

Teaching place value of decimals to the tenths and hundredths isn’t always easy! But these visual model activities with digital manipulatives can help!

This lesson includes interactive Google Slides, digital manipulatives, and a video on how to edit the master slide to create more practice problems easily!


Using effective visual models is one of the most important activities to do when you’re teaching decimals.  Use these digital manipulative visual models to help your students practice decimals.

Students may struggle to understand place value of decimals. Many students will understand decimals after creating them with the digital manipulatives.

In this lesson, students will use the digital manipulatives to create visual models to learn about numbers with decimals. And, they’ll begin to make visual connections. This visual connection and the use of digital manipulatives will help your students succeed. (Common Core Standard 4.NF.C.5-6)
