Studying "writing decimals in expanded form" or do your kids just need a little review of finding the value of the digits in basic decimals to the thousandth's place? They are sure to enjoy this "Emoji Expanded Form" themed decimal expanded form game.
You can now buy this game in a bundled pack of math games by clicking HERE.
In this game, students will be presented with a standard form number and expanded form with one of the values of the expanded form missing. The numbers presented have whole numbers and decimals to the thousandth's place. Students look at the expanded form version of the number and tell the missing value. They are not writing the entire number in expanded form, rather they look to tell the value that is missing. For example, students will see: 965.237 - (9x100) + (6x10) + (5x1) + (2x1/10) + (3x1/100) + ____. The answer that students would give is (7x1/1,000). All answers are given written as a fraction, as that is the way the sample is presented on the common core website.
How does the game work? Students will roll, solve, and then go. On a student's turn, they will roll the dice one time. They will then move that many spaces. They will then look at the game sheet titled "Tell the missing value. Game Problems" and tell the missing value of the expanded form..Their partner will check the answer on the key. If they get it right, they get to move ahead one more space. If they miss it, they move back 3 spaces. The first one to the end wins the game.
**Please, ... if you are unsure about anything with the game or you have questions, I would appreciate if you send me a message before purchasing. I want you to be happy with the activity. :-) Thank you.**
NOTE: This is a black/white game with black line graphics. There is NOT a color copy included. When I created this for my own class, I decided to make something that took few copies, something that would save my ink, something that had easy directions, and was very little prep work. :-)
This decimal expanded form place value game will work perfectly as a math center during math rotations.
Please look closely at the thumbnails and preview to make sure the decimals I chose will work for you.
For this game, you will need a dice, game markers, the game board, the answer key, and possibly notebook paper.
Your students are sure to have fun as they play.
