My students love the game garbage (some call it trash), but I wanted to make it more meaningful for 4th grade, so I turned it into the MINI Decimal Garbage Game!
This is a very simple game that can be played individual, partner, or small group of no more than four.
Instructions: Dealer deals out 10 cards face down to each player. The remaining cards go in a stack in the middle. All players line their cards up in two rows of five.
The dealer goes first and draws one card. That card will be placed in the correct position on the row. The sequence is .1-1.00. See picture for more details.
The dealer continues to play until he/she can no longer place a card. That card is discarded next to the stack face-up. The next player has the option of taking the discarded card or drawing one. Then he/she continues to place the cards in the correct sequence until he/she can’t anymore. This continues until the first player to have all 10 cards flipped over in the correct sequence wins.
Super easy to play and only 4 pages to print!
