Video Description:

Ride along next to Rob as he drives through the country side learning about place value in Numberock's most popular song. In his journey through the pear orchard he’ll discover that ten ones make ten, ten tens make one hundred, and ten hundreds make one thousand.

Then he undertakes an epic bike ride - 100 miles! Holy Moly! As his trip nears its end, he discovers that even after the thousand’s place, the base ten pattern he has discovered has no end; a truth that draws him into quiet contemplation.

Place Value Lyrics:

Picking pears, I got 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9;
that’s all that fit inside the ones place value line.
So I picked another pear and made a group of ten.
They fit into a bag perfectly even.
20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90:
I had to keep picking pears - a hunger I had to feed -
so I picked another ten and that led
to one group of one hundred.
(A pear bonked me on the head and I said...)

CHORUS:
Ten ones make ten.
Ten groups of ten are one hundred.
Ten hundreds make one thousand;
the pattern never ends.

I rode my bike one whole mile,
then 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and in a little while,
another mile made one group of ten.
A little voice inside my head said,
“Keep going I know you can!”
20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90:
I never knew I had so many miles inside me!
The end of my trip was coming up ahead;
I rode ten more miles and reached one hundred.
(Then that little voice inside my head said...)

After the bell rang at eight o’clock,
I started playing with my base ten blocks.
I stacked up nine and then one more made ten,
and then ten tens equaled one hundred.
200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900:
another hundred wouldn’t fit in the hundred’s space...
I had to write one group in the thousands place!
(And then I played the air bass.)

Ten groups of one thousand equal ten thousand.
Ten ten thousands make one hundred thousand.
And ten of those make one million,
and the pattern has no end.
