This activity emphasizes the base 10 relationship between places, and students will quickly demonstrate mastery of the concept as they play Place Value Football, where a football field is used as a metaphor for the base 10 system.
Even students who aren't football fans will enjoy the action and suspense as the ball moves up and down the field.
A spinner dictates whether the football moves to a place 10x greater, 10x smaller, 100x greater, 100x smaller, 1000x greater, or 1000x smaller.
Two fields are included: a whole number-only field and a field that also has decimal places. Different spinner configurations are also included to show different ways to express powers of ten.
This is a PDF containing spinners, dice templates, footballs, and fields ready to be printed out on card stock and put to use.
