This is an engaging, kinesthetic place value activity to teach and reinforce using standard, word, and expanded forms to represent numbers up to 1,200. Kids LOVE this fun game and it can be played over and over and over!
This can be played whole group using the larger set of cards, or put in a center when using the smaller set of cards. There are also 2 sheets included to check for understanding!
half-sheet sized set of cards for playing whole group
quarter-sized sheet cards for use in a center
2 coordinating sheets to check for understanding
Give each student one card. After all cards have been distributed, the teacher says “Go!” Each student moves around the room, holding his or her card up for others to see. The students will have to find the 3 other people that belong in their group by matching up the standard form, word form, expanded form, and place value blocks. When they have found all their members, they have to stand with their arms linked in one line. Play this several times by trading cards between rounds.
Use these cards, but play Go Fish or Memory. Or, give each student one card and have them write down the other forms on the included worksheet. Great for center work!
