This differentiated place value trash can game makes it enjoyable to better understand the standard of number and operations in base ten. Working with a partner, students have the goal of creating the most amount of numbers with the greatest value possible. These numbers are formed by rolling die.
Feel free to laminate these handouts to reuse it - keeping it handy in a mathematics center of the classroom.
Note: students are who need more of a challenge can go on to the next handout. Rather than form the greatest 3-digit number up to the hundreds, they can go up to the thousands!
Enjoy watching your second graders have a blast while enhancing skills on place value along with number sense!
