Place Value Math Games is 3 games in one. Students will practice place value with numbers to 99 by playing memory, go fish or find your match. After playing a math game, students can reinforce their learning with a place value worksheet. Great addition to your math program or for when you are away and need a math lesson.
Find your Match Instructions:
Take out the number of cards equal to the amount of students you have. Make sure you take out the number cards and the tens and ones card. 76 seven tens six ones
Mix up the cards. Give each student a card.
On your signal, the students stand up and find their match.
When the students have found their match they sit down together. Have each group read their number and tens and ones card.
Go Fish Instructions
Play in groups of 2 or 3.
Mix the cards and shuffle out 5 cards. Spread out the remaining cards facedown in the center of the table.
Players look to see if any of their cards match and place the matches in front of them.
Player 1 asks a player of their choice ‘do you have….. ?’ For example. if the player has the 77 card they would say do you have 7 tens and 7 ones. Or if the player has the 3 tens and 4 ones card they would say do you have 34.
If the player has the card asked for they would give it to that player and it is the next player’s turn. If not, they would say ‘go fish’ and the player would pick up a card from the center of the table. If the player picks up a card that matches one from their hand they place the match in front of them.
When a player runs out of cards they pick up 5 more cards from the center or however many cards remain if less than 5.
Play continues until all the cards in the center are gone. The player with the most pairs wins!
Play in groups of 2 or 3.
Mix the cards and lay facedown on the table in rows.
Player 1 flips over 2 cards. If a match is made the player keeps both cards. If the cards do not match then the player flips the cards back over.
Variations: players flips over 3 cards or players go again when a match is made.
Player 2s turn.
Play continues until all the cards have been matched.
The player with the most matches wins!
