This place value decimals game will keep your 5th grade students engaged in practicing place value and decimal skills. Students will add and subtract 0.01 and 0.1 using manipulatives to race to get to the number 1. Your students will improve their mental math skills by playing this game and increasing their place value and decimal understanding with plenty of practice!

Fifth Grade place value and decimal skills are made more understandable when students use concrete pieces. In this game each student receives a game board. In turn, each student picks up a card and adds or subtracts 0, 0.01 or 0.1 to their board. In the case that a student picks up a card that asks them to subtract more than they have on their board, they will not subtract ANY pieces. In the case that a student has ten of a given unit they will bundle them together and trade them in for the next unit up. For example, if they have ten hundredths, they will trade them in for a tenth. If they have ten tenths, they will trade them in for 1… and win!
