This "Guess My Number: 20 Questions" game requires that students become very familiar with the whole number and decimal number place value chart. It requires them to ask questions about the place location of digits on the chart.
The goal is to try to guess a decimal number that another student has created by asking no more than 20 "Yes" and "No" questions. When students are able to figure out the number, they get a star on their chart. The goal is to get 16 stars.
The game encourages students to ask those “Yes” and “No” answerable questions only, such as:
Is the number less than 1000?
Is there a digit in the tenth place? Is that digit greater than 5?
Is there more than one digit in the decimal?
Is the decimal less than three hundredths?
The games includes:
1. Directions on how to play
2. A "This Is My Number" Place Value Chart
3. 2 sheets of "Digit Squares"
4. 20 Questions Tally Charts
5. A "Star Chart"
6. Page of stars
Alternative to using “Digit Squares”:
You can either laminate or place the “This Is My Number!” Chart in a transparent “sleeve” and let students use dry erase markers to write on the chart directly. Old socks make great erasers, as to square of felt!
YOU are in charge of dispensing the Stars! If you had rather use stickers or gold sticky stars, etc., that would be great! Somehow, GETTING something from the teacher makes it more valuable than simply drawing it on the chart!
