$0.99 or Free on Plus | 5 pages (PDF, Word)|Grades: 3 - 4 | Starter Sheet

A fun game for students to play in pairs to consolidate their understanding of rounding to 10, 100 or 1000.

Students will love challenging each other using this fun, engaging place value game.

Print out and laminate copies of the game board and number cards.

In turns, students must round the numbers on the number cards to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000 (depending on what is decided before commencing the game). If they round the number up, they move up the ladder on their game board. If they round the number down, they move down the ladder.

The student who reaches the top of the ladder on their game board first is the winner.

More comprehensive instructions on how to play the game are included in the resource.
