Learning objects Number trains: 1–10 [Italian]

TLF ID L10791

Use your knowledge of Italian numbers one to ten to arrange train carriages according to numbers on their sides. The numbers are represented in a range of formats such as Italian number words, numerals, dice dots or counting frames. Identify the numbers that come before and after starting numbers. This learning object is the first in a series of three objects that progressively increase in difficulty.
