This game is designed to get students thinking about missing parts to an addition number sentences, by playing a FUN and ENGAGING game!
Students will play in groups of 3. 1 person will be "santa" or the elf, etc. The other 2 will sit next to each other facing Santa. They will take a nose, without looking at it and hold it up to their noses. Santa will add the 2 numbers together and tell the 2 "Rudolphs" the sum. The Rudolphs will look at each other's number and try to figure out what their number is (again, without looking!) The winner gets both noses. The person with the most noses at the end becomes the new Santa!
In this packet are the noses, teacher directions and smaller student directions.
