Does zero have a place in a number? Of course it does, or does it? Students use this partner activity and a die to determine if the value of a 3 or 4-digit number changes if a zero is used before or within a number.
This activity brings a great discussion of number representation and can be used whole group or in centers. Also, the children's book, can be easily incorporated.
Check out my 2nd Grade Place Value Game BUNDLE. It has SEVEN place value games (including this one)!
Have fun and thank you for looking!
