Put large numbers in their places with this math game! Use Crayola® Color Switchers™ Markers to colorfully label ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands—or higher.
We use numbers all the time, such as when we look for a house or work out how much we can buy. Numbers are made of digits, much like words are made with letters. Each digit has a value depending on its place in the number. For example, in the number 5,432 there are 5 thousands, 4 hundreds, 3 tens, and 2 ones (or units).
<STRONG>Make your game cards. </STRONG>Work with a partner or small team to write your favorite two-, three-, and four-digit numbers on index cards with Crayola Color Switchers Markers. Write a different number on each card. Make at least 10 cards for each player.
<STRONG>Choose color codes.</STRONG> Decide together which color you will assign to each place value. For example, ones could be orange, tens yellow, hundreds green, and thousands blue.
<STRONG>Play!</STRONG> Shuffle the cards. Deal an equal number of cards to each person. Use Color Switchers Markers to label the places in each number on the cards you have. Invent your own games for the cards (see Adaptations).
