With "Add It Up," students can play two math games, one based on comparing numbers and one on addition. This game can be used as a differentiation tool based on student's abilities. The first game is "Who Has the Greater Number?" Students turn over cards to see who has the greater number. The student who has the greater card takes both cards. The second game is "Who Has the Most?" Students turn over 2 cards at once and add to find the total. The student with the highest total takes all four cards. The product can be printed on either card stock or plain paper. The deck consists of 40 cards, with each card having a number from 1 to 10, with both the number written on it as well as a picture representing the number. If a teacher wants a larger deck, the resource can be printed twice, for a deck of 80 cards. Created by Lori Romley.
