Description

These math guessing games create high levels of student engagement and rigor, while helping kids develop math vocabulary and a deeper understanding of number sense and place value to the ones, tens, and hundreds place. Your students will love these place value games!

Using the classic GUESS WHO game boards, students ask yes or no questions to try and guess their opponent’s mystery number. It takes a lot of skill to not only formulate questions, but also eliminate numbers based on their opponent’s answers. These number sense games are perfect for math centers or early finishers!

This place value game includes 4 game versions that can be used for differentiation or to switch out as your students progress through the school year:

✅ Numbers 0-23

✅ 2 Digit Numbers

✅ 3 Digit Numbers

✅ Mixed Numbers (a combination of 1, 2, and 3 Digit Numbers)

Each of the 4 versions includes:

  • Game Board Number Cards (to fit into the game board flaps)
  • Mystery Number Cards (contains the number that opponents are trying to guess)
  • A "Cheat Sheet" (a visual reference sheet for students to use if they get stuck thinking of questions to ask). The more they play, the less they will need the Cheat Sheet!

Example questions:

  • "Does your number have a 6 in the hundreds place?"
  • "Is your number an even number?"
  • "Is your number greater than 30?"
  • "Does your number come between 345 and 350?"

PLEASE NOTE: This resource includes templates for an original version of "Guess Who?" sold on Amazon, as well as this specific newer version of the board game: Guess Who on Amazon. Other versions may have different dimensions for the flaps, and therefore the cards will not fit.

Here's what teachers are saying about this Guess Who place value game:
