This engaging game allows students to practice comparing numbers between the ones place and the thousands place. It can be used in the classroom as a partner or group “math center” activity.
* Students will also need a deck of playing cards and game markers to play the game.
THIS PRODUCT INCLUDES: Game Directions, How to Set Up the Cards Sheet, and 2 Game Boards.
DIRECTIONS: To set up the game, separate the red and black cards into stacks. One player will use the red cards with the red Game Board numbers while the other player will use the black cards with the black Game Board numbers. To begin playing, players shuffle their stack of cards and lay out nine cards in the shape of a pyramid. Players begin turning over the top card revealing a single-digit number. The player with the highest number moves his/her marker one space. Players then turn over their second row of cards revealing a two-digit number. The player with the highest number moves his/her marker one space. Players continue doing the same thing with the third (three-digit number) and the fourth (four-digit number) row. If there is a tie, both players move their game marker one space. Players shuffle their cards and deal another round. The first player to climb down the pyramid and reach the 25th space is the winner.
