Place value card game is a fun math game that is easy to play. It helps kids to practice their understanding of place values, greater than, less than or equal to math facts. You just need a single deck of card, which I guess you already have. My kids loved to play it when they were young. Personally, I believe that basic things such as deck of cards, coins, dice, and popsicle sticks are excellent math tools that can be used to play some exciting math games.
How to play Place Value Math CARD Game
- Remove 10s, Kings,Queens and Jacks from the deck. Ace equals one.
- Players take turns to draw one card at a time, attempting to build the largest possible 3 digit number.
- Once players have drawn three cards in total, they place ( and can not be moved ) them on the table into the ones, tens and hundreds place.
- Next, each player draw the fourth card. Then, they pick one of the card on the table from the ones, tens and hundreds place to discard and replace it with the fourth one. Or, they can also discard the fourth card.
- The player who makes the largest 3 digit number wins that round.
- The game will continue until all of the cards in the deck have been used.
- The player with the most wins win.
You can easily modify the place value math card game for 2 digit, 4 digit or even larger numbers.
