## CHAPTER 2

### INTRODUCTION

In Chapter 2 you have learned about place value. You played games such as Duelling Digits (Student Book, p 37) and Race for Two Toonies (Student Book, p 43) to help you practice your place value skills. Your teacher noticed that everyone liked playing the games and thought it would be a good idea if there were more place value games in the classroom for everyone to use.

Your teacher would like to have a lot of different types of games for students to practice place value skills. Work with a partner to design and make a fun game about the place value skills that you learned about in this chapter. The game can be a card game, a dice game, a board game or a guessing game.

### THE PROCESS

1. Research different types of place value games.

a. With your partner, play at least 5 of the games found at the websites listed here:

b. After you play each game, enter information into the All About Place Value Games sheet.
c. Use the information on the All About Place Value Games sheet to decide what type of game your will design.

"Which type did you both enjoy the most?"
"How were the instructions written?"
"Will it be possible to make a similar type of game?"
"Could you combine the best parts of several games to make a new game?"

1. List the skills and the questions that will be asked in the game.
2. Gather your equipment and supplies.
3. Make a prototype of your game. This is a simple version of the game. If it is a board game, just draw it on plain paper at this time.
4. Write the rule.
5. Let some friends play your game and ask them what worked and what did not work.
6. Use the feedback you got from your friends to make changes.
7. Make the final version of your game.
