Place value game
This game develops academic language and specific vocabulary connected with discussion of place value, and provides practice with place value ideas.
Preparation: Cut out the set of Attribute Cards you want to use (set A is easiest, set B is medium, set C is the most difficult). Setting up: Play in a small group.
- Each player writes 5 four-digit numbers on his or her own sheet of paper, neatly and large enough for other players to see.
- Place the Attribute Cards face down.
Play: Take turns turning over an Attribute Card and reading it aloud.
- All players cross out any of their numbers that match that attribute.
- Play until someone has crossed out all 5 numbers. That person wins!
Example: A player turns over a card that says "thousands digit > 6": If your numbers are 1409, 7246, 2030, 8925, and 5634, you can cross out 7246 and 8925. Play as many games as you can in the time allowed.
