Place Value Safari Game
Understanding place value is integral for success in higher level mathematics, which makes it imperative that our children master it as early as possible. And that’s where this fun game comes in! Focusing on addition and subtraction through 13 and its application to place value, game play is straightforward with solving equations or taking cards to earn (or lose!) units and exchanging them for base ten rods. The goal is to fill their board with 10-ten rods. Game components are quality constructed, from the vibrantly colored game board to the base ten units and rods. Along with game pieces, the game also includes 40 base ten units (1cm), 40 base ten rods (10cm) and 1 base 10 flat (10x10x1 cm). While the manufacturer recommends it for ages 8 and up, it would be appropriate for younger children who need basic math practice or for anyone who needs a great introduction to place value. 4 players.
Have your students enter the jungle where a hungry tiger prowls! Players must fill their safari boards with base ten units and rods to escape the tiger. To do this, they complete a variety of simple math tasks as they move along the game board.
