Play a two-person number guessing game that exercises understanding of base 10 math notation and place value. Crayola Dry-Erase Crayons are a must for this game of beginning logic and deduction.
Introduce students to math vocabulary used to describe numbers with more than one digit. For example, words like “place” and “digit” should be introduced so they can be used to communicate information in this game.
Demonstrate how to play the game with a student partner. Each partner needs a dry-erase board and Crayola Dry-Erase Crayons. The teacher should model the role of Partner B while a student can model the role of Partner A.
Partner A privately writes a mystery number on a dry-erase board using dry-erase crayons. The number chosen should be 2 or more digits, depending on level of difficulty appropriate for students. Partner A hides the number by covering it with a piece of black or dark construction paper.
On a second dry-erase board Partner B uses dry-erase crayons to make a three-column guessing chart with these headings: “guess”, “digits correct”, and “places correct”.
Partner B guesses the number by writing it under the “guess” column. Partner A checks the guess and writes the number of digits correct (numerals in the guess that are in the mystery number) and the number of places correct (numerals that are in the correct place).
Partner B reflects on the information provided by Partner A and then makes another guess. Be sure to model your thought process by thinking aloud as you reflect on the information provided by Partner A.
Continue the game until the mystery number is discovered. If necessary, columns may need to be erased to continue adding more and more guesses.
