5 pages (PDF)|Suitable for Grades: 3 - 4

A fun game for students to play to consolidate their understanding of place value and mentally adding/subtracting multiples of 10; 100; and 1,000.

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

Print out and laminate copies of the score sheets and number cards. An example score sheet is provided as a demonstration of how to play the game.

Students draw a number card. This becomes their starting number. Each player then takes turns spinning the spinner. The instruction that is spun must be applied to the starting number (add 10; subtract 10; add 100; subtract 100; add 1,000; subtract 1,000). The revised number is then recorded in the appropriate column on the score sheet.

The player whose number is closest to 10,000 at the end of the game is the winner.

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