A whole-class game to reinforce your students' understanding of place value.
Use this teaching resource in the classroom as a fun, whole-class game when exploring place value with your students.
Print out the game cards on cardstock for added durability and cut them out. Provide each student with a card. The student with the sentence, ‘I am the starter,’ begins the game by standing up and reading their card. The student with the correct answer on their card stands up and reads their card. The game continues until the last person reads out, ‘I am the last number!’
