This game was created to provide teachers with a Place Value Memory game that does not use base 10 blocks. Throughout my years as an educator, I always found it hard to move from concrete base 10 blocks, to the abstract idea of digits in place value. Therefore, I started utilizing place value "discs" to bridge the gap.
After extensive modeling with base 10 blocks, I converted to modeling with place value discs. Basically, I took round circle counters of 3 different colors and drew 1, 10, and 100 on them with permanent marker. Throughout my lessons, with place value discs, I found this memory game to be helpful within small group and math centers.
