Place Value Challenge!

Today, we will be looking at the place value of numbers.

This song can help remind you about what place value means.

Place value is the value of each digit in a number. For example, the 5 in 350 represents 5 tens, or 50; however, the 5 in 15 represents 5 ones.


We would like you to represent the numbers below in the most creative ways you can. For example for 123 you could use a a pen to represent the hundreds, two buttons to represent the tens and three books for the ones.


Here are some example pictures to help give you ideas:



Starter numbers:

12 56

18 77

36 89


Challenge numbers: 112 561

148 747

336 819


If you really want to challenge yourself, can you make a 4 digit number using resources at home?


Here is a question for you to think about.

How do you know which number matches the correct representation?
