Decimal place value printable four in a row game to consolidate and review understanding of decimals to two and three decimal places (hundredths and thousandths). 4th and 5th Grade Math Center activity but could suit other grades too. Well-differentiated: includes two game boards for different levels of challenge and 2 sets of 54 number cards for further differentiation.
Two sets of 54 decimal number cards featuring numbers from 0.001 to 2.01 (1 set includes numbers up to 2 decimal places, the other to 3 decimal places).
Two Four in a Row boards. The 1 star version was originally designed to go with the cards to 2 decimal places, while the more challenging 2 star version was designed for the cards to 3 decimal places. However, both sets of cards would work with either board, depending on the level of challenge you wish to set for your students. The board works especially well in 11x17 / A3 (adjust your printer settings if necessary). However, you could print in Letter size / A4 (again, check your printer settings to ensure the whole board fits on the page). If printing the boards in the larger size, print cards to match from pages 3-13. Use the ones from page 14-21 with a smaller board.
You could have pairs take on other pairs. Each team of two starts with a set of cards. Print one set of each color per game or use different color card or paper if printing in black and white, then laminate to use again and again. It works well if each team shuffles their cards, puts them in a pile and takes one from the top at a time, which they then put down on the board if there's a suitable empty box. They aim to get four of their cards in a row. Each box has a stipulation about the numbers that can be placed on it (no tenths, < 1.5, > 0.31, < 0.56, five hundredths etc). To save printing you could split a set of cards between 2 or 3 boards as a single team won't require all 54 cards. The cards can also be used separately from the game boards for ordering activities. A student instruction card and teacher guidance notes are also included.
