Day 12 / 102 - Who's the Greatest?
We're slowly working our academic curriculum back in alongside all of our adventure.
We've been playing this card game regularly as my children review place value by creating the greatest five-digit number. We've used two shuffled decks of cards with all the tens and face cards removed. Each player is dealt five cards. Players arrange their cards to create the greatest possible five-digit number. Players read their numbers aloud and decide which number is greater. The player with the number with the greatest value wins all the cards from that round. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins.
