Understanding the Place Value System: This game will help reinforce place value skills by having students rename numbers/values. They should recognize patterns with zeros and use multiples of ten to help them solve the problems on the game board.
You are sure to love my 5th grade game pack, which you can view HERE.
What is included in this math game pack? There is a black and white game board, which includes problems to solve. The game board include a fun patterned background and clip art. An answer key is provided for teammates to check answers.
How does the game work? Students will roll, solve, and then go. On a student's turn, they will roll the dice one time. They will then move that many spaces. They will then fill in the blank to solve the problem. Their partner will check the answer using the key. If they get it right, they get to move ahead one more space. If they miss it, they move back 2 spaces. The first one to the end wins the game.
What materials do you need to play the place value game? You will need a dice, game markers, the included game board, and the answer key.
Can you give some examples of problems to solve. Yes!
630 = ____ tens (63)
234,700 = ____ hundreds (2,347)
330,000 = ___ ten thousands (33)
How many kids can play? You will need at least 2 players. I typically don't have more than 4 play one of my games, but you can use a number that works best for your class.
What prep does the game take? I created this game with easy prep in mind. It prints in black and white and only two pages are needed. You may want to provide scrap paper for some kids. You can laminate these, but I do not. There isn't any cutting involved. They are pretty much print and go.
How can I use this game in my classroom? This place value game will work perfectly for math workshop. It can be used as a center activity as you work it into your math rotations, for a Friday game day, or even for early finishers. It's also perfect to use for review before a unit test or even pull it out before state testing as a test prep activity toward the end of the year. Use this game in your classroom however you would like.
**Please, ... if you are unsure about anything with the game or you have questions, I would appreciate if you send me a message before purchasing. I want you to be happy with the activity. :-) Thank you.**
Also, if you ever see that I made a mistake or an error on the answer key, please allow me a chance to get it corrected for you. I can usually do so very quickly. I have two sets of eyes look at everything, but we might miss something here or there. Not much, but it can happen. Thank you ahead of time! It is greatly appreciated. Just send me a message on my Q and A, and I will get it taken care of.
