You Need: (2 sets of cards included) Laminated and Cut

*Play whole group first to get the class use to the game.

Directions: Choose 3 to 8 people to play with you. Keep the large cards in the pile face down. Shuffle small number cards. Pass the small cards out equally. Students may look at those. One person starts by flipping a large question card over and reading it. (“I have 58. Who has 10 MORE?”) Players check their answer cards. Say the answer out loud. The one who has the answer keeps the card behind their back. Next person turns a card over. Repeat until finished. Count your cards at the end to see who has the most.

* There are 4 BRAIN BREAKS cards in the game.
