### How do you explain Base Ten Blocks?

Base 10 blocks are a set of four different types of blocks that, when used together, can help you to see what a number looks like and understand its value. Additionally, base 10 blocks can be used to help understand addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, volume, perimeter, and area.

**How do you make a base 10 block?**

How to Make your DIY Base 10 Counters

- Count out 20 single blocks and set aside.
- For each 10 you make take a block glue one end and attach the next one.
- Continue so that you have 10 in a row.
- Now Place the elastic band around them to hold in place until the glue dries.
- Remove the elastic band and you are ready to go.
