This fun card game is a perfect, and fun, way for your students to practice comparing two numbers. The game includes directions, cards numbered 1-100, 2 Blank cards (you KNOW some will get lost!), and the "Doghouse" cards.
The game is played like War, with a twist! Print and cut out the number and Doghouse cards. Working with a partner, students will shuffle and divide the cards into two stacks. Each player places a stack of cards face down in front of them. The players then each turn the top card on the stack at the same time. Students will compare the numbers and determine which is greater. The student with the largest number is the "Big Dog" and keeps both cards that were compared. If a "Doghouse" card is flipped, the owner of the card must give the Doghouse card to the other partner, as well as 1 or 2 as stated on the Doghouse card. That player then turns another card, and play continues. Once all cards have been played, each player counts his/her cards. The player with the most cards is the "Big Dog"!
The number cards may also be used for:
* Number recognition/assessment
* Number ordering
* Count on from ...(draw a card and have class count on from that number. Great little piece to add to calendar time.)
