Kids often love screen time, and while it can be concerning for many parents, if utilized with enriching games, it can be an excellent source for learning. Since place value is a crucial and important skill to grasp; I thought it’d be fun to share a cool place value game that I discovered recently. It’s free to play; I will provide you with the direct link to it later in the post. The title of the game is, “Town Creator (Place Value).” ‘Free Training Tutorial’ shares the game via their website - so a big thank you to them for making it available for free access by all!
CHOOSE YOUR LEVEL FOR PLACE VALUE DIFFICULTY
First up, you need to choose the place value range of difficulty you wish to practice. As you can see in the image below, the levels vary from 3-digit to 7-digit numbers. Depending on the age and ability of the player, you can easily adjust the game to suit his/her practice needs.
HOW TO PLAY
A math problem will appear on the top of the screen along with four possible answers. Click the correct answer to have a new house added to your town.
Progression will unlock new levels to add trees, cars and other exciting objects.
The AIM OF THE GAME is to make your town as beautiful as possible (the more practice along with correct answers = a nicer town). Players can click the 'Show Off' button to view their town without the math questions.
