FREE Place Value Game

Step 1: Assign 1 student to be the "teacher". The remaining students in the small group will be the "guessers". 

Step 2: Cut apart the place value deck and place the cards face down in a pile. The student playing the teacher gets to hold onto the deck. They choose one card to begin the game.

Step 3: The students playing the guesser guess a digit. The teacher tells them if the digit is in their number. If the digit IS in the number, they tell them which place value or place values the digit goes in. 


Step 4:  If the digit the guesser guesses is NOT in the number, the guesser has to cross out a balloon. If all of the balloons are crossed out, the girl jumps into the pool! Can your students guess the whole number before the girl jumps in the pool?
