An amazing new spaceship was recently created. Instead of running on gas, it is fueled by brain power! Your addition and subtraction skills are sure to power your rocket deep into the solar system for tons of cool space exploration fun.
Players must begin at the astronaut, and make their way to the end of the solar system by rolling the dice. If a player lands on a star, he/she must pick a Space Explorer game card and correctly answer the question in order to propel his/her ship deeper into the universe. If a player lands on a planet he/she can count it as a new discovery by circling it on his/her game card (and don’t forget to share a bit about it with your friends!). The astronaut to explore the most planets wins!
In this super fun Smarten-Up game, students will further develop their addition and subtraction work problems.
We suggest having students circle the relevant numbers in the problem, then act out the problem or use counters/drawings to decide which operation to use (+/-). Students will have a blast and develop their addition and subtraction skills at the same time.
* print additional Space Discovery cards depending on the number of players.
