Place Value Mat
One dice or playing cards (no face cards)
How to Play
1. Each player takes a turn either pulling a card or rolling the dice.
2. The player determines where on their place value mat, they want to place the number. They write that number in the designated column.
For example: A 5 is pulled out of the deck of cards.
The player chooses to put the five in the hundred column.
3. Play continues until each player has filled up their place value mat.
4. Students compare numbers. The person with the highest (or lowest) number wins.
Notes and Modifications
*Note that when using dice, the standard die will only have numbers 1-6 but playing cards will give you 1-9 (and if needed you can use the ace as a 0).
* For younger students you can use the a few place values, whereas older students, you can go up the millions.
*To go even more advanced, for those students who need a bigger challenge, have students create the highest number they can, record it down. Then make the lowest number they can, record it down. The players then subtract the lowest number from the highest number to get their new total. The player with the highest final number wins.
