### In This Video

Skylar and Henry are invited to a block party - but to find the location they need to use place value. Using a thousands place value chart, and place value blocks - thousands, they’re able to find the house and go to the block party. However, it’s a little different than they’re used to!

### Place Value to the Thousands Example

To find place value to the thousands, we can use a place value chart to thousands to help us. Let’s take a look at the number two thousand and ninety-seven to practice place value to thousands.

Starting at the thousand place, use two thousands place value blocks, and write two thousands underneath as this represents the thousands place value.

Now move to the hundreds place. There is the number zero here, so the place value of the hundreds is zero hundreds. Write this underneath the hundreds place.

Now move to the tens place. There is a number nine here, so use nine tens blocks. The place value of the tens is nine tens. Write this underneath the hundreds place.

Now move to the ones place. There is a number seven here, so use seven ones blocks. The place value of the ones is seven ones. Write this underneath the ones place.

### Place Value to Thousands - Summary

### TranscriptPlace Value - Ones, Tens, Hundreds and Thousands

Skylar and Henry are invited to a party at two thousand ninety-seven Block Avenue. However, houses on Block Avenue use base ten blocks to represent their numbers. To find the location, Skylar and Henry will use place value - ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands. Place value is the value of a digit based on its position in a number. We can use a place value chart and base ten blocks to help identify the value of a digit in a number with four-digits. Let's take a look at the number one thousand, two hundred thirty-five. In the thousands place, use a thousands block because one is in the thousands place. The value of one in the thousands place is one thousand. In the hundreds place, use two hundreds blocks because two is in the hundreds place. The value of two in the hundreds place is two hundreds. In the tens place, use three tens blocks because three is in the tens place. The value of three in the tens place is three tens. Finally, in the ones place, use five ones blocks because five is in the ones place. The value of five in the ones place is five ones. Now that we have looked at place value up to the thousands place, let's help Skylar and Henry find the location of the party! On Block Avenue, they need to find two thousand ninety seven. Use a place value chart to set up the number. In the thousands place, use two thousands blocks because two is in the thousands place. What is the value of the thousands place? The value is two thousands. In the hundreds place, use zero hundreds blocks because zero is in the hundreds place. We use zero to hold the place value when there is no value for it. What is the value of the hundreds place? The value is zero hundreds. In the tens place, use nine tens blocks because nine is in the tens place. What is the value of the tens place? The value is nine tens. Finally, in the ones place, use seven ones blocks because seven is in the ones place. What is the value of the ones place? The value is seven ones. Skylar and Henry will look for the location with base ten blocks like this above the door! While they make their way, let's review! Remember, base ten blocks can help identify the place value of numbers. The thousands place shows how many thousands there are. The hundreds place shows how many hundreds there are. The tens place shows how many tens there are. The ones place shows how many ones there are. "Henry, I don't recall block parties being like this. Do you?" "No Skylar, I really don't."
