Decimal Place Value - mastery is a must for this critical concept! This game is essential for any unit that involves decimal place value. It can also used as a challenging review at the beginning of the year and as many times as necessary. It is a fun way for your students to use the names of the various digits repeatedly and with a great deal of thought, thereby helping them master decimal place value once and for all (and forever!). It consists of 20 reusable “What number am I?” cards that can be easily laminated, cut up, and distributed to students to play a who-can-get-the-most-correct-answers game. Also provided are instructions to the students, a worked-out example that demonstrates how to attack the riddle cards, a detailed place value chart for review before starting the game, an answer sheet to record answers and any necessary work, and an answer key for teacher use. Just review the place value chart, describe how to find the solution to the practice riddle card, explain the rules, and send the students off on this exciting educational game!

NOTE: By customer request, this product has recently been upgraded to include a section on ORDERING DECIMALS. This section includes a quick review of how to put a group of decimals in order from least to greatest, and a fun puzzle to cement these concepts.

NOTE 2: This product is now also part of a complete, 100-page, three-week Decimals Unit which comes equipped with warm-ups, notes, and worksheets for place value, ordering, adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, and order of operations. Those looking for a comprehensive decimals unit should purchase Decimals Unit - It's All Right Here! instead of the Decimal Riddle Card Challenge product.

NOTE 3: This product can also be purchased as part of a bundled set of four riddle card products, sold at a discounted rate. See Decimal Place/ Median-Mean/ Prime/ Fraction-Decimal-Percent Riddle Card Bundle for more information.

NOTE 4: This product is also sold as part of a bundled, discounted, comprehensive review of math concepts critical to the start of sixth grade. Please see Back to School Math Review for Sixth Grade if you are interested in purchasing this back to school packet.

Enjoy your use of the Decimal Place Value Riddle Card Challenge!
