Age Appropriateness/Rationale

In Place Value Workshop, students can explore the concept of place value in three different ways. First, in the "play" mode, students have five minutes to construct as many numbers as possible using the online base-10 blocks. The game starts off using basic numbers but progresses into tens, hundreds, and even thousands. Points are determined by the size of the number constructed. In the practice mode, users build numbers in the same way as the play mode but without a timer or scoring. In the "build" mode, students can make place value pictures. As they add base ten blocks to their picture, they’ll see the value of their picture increase.

Place Value Workshop is perfect for kids ages 6 – 9, Grade Levels: 1-4 (apx.)
