Hi-Lo is a popular go-to activity in my math class. Students try to beat the game by building five and six-digit numbers, one digit at a time. I teach Hi-Lo Place Value Game pretty much the first day of a new school year because it's a great way to warm up their math brains. It also gives me good information about my new group's understanding of place value, reading large numbers, and problem-solving.

Hi-Lo can be played as solitaire, in small groups or with an entire class. It's easily modified for younger kids, yet challenging enough for the older ones. (Differentiation ideas are included.) It would make a great addition to your substitute teacher plans!

Set includes Teacher Instructions, 4 different class game sheets, 2 with place-value headings, 2 with just the places. Game sheets may be cut apart for individual use or give everyone a whole sheet to keep in their math folders as a go-to activity.

This fun game is also part of the bundle, Math Games Galore!

Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
