This is a blank place value chart that you can print and use for a wide range of different activities. We think that you should really have a giant one of these across the top of your whiteboard. But this is a handy size that you can print and use with learners anywhere and anytime.

Here are some ideas of activities developing or practising place value. Use the place value chart for:
- Showing how the place of the number determines its value.
- Any calculations, but especially involving big numbers or really small numbers including decimals.
- Showing how numbers shift left or right depending on whether they are multiplied or divided by 10, 100, 1000
- Doing conversions within a system, such as from millimetres to metres for metric measurement.
You can refer back to the example we used earlier for planning a numeracy activity. This used a place value chart. Also, you can refer to any of the place value activities in the Learning Progressions. This resource would work with any and all of them.
How else could you use or build from this resource?
