A-Mazing Tens is a favourite math game for kids of all ages. This engaging "hands-on" activity challenges players to think strategically as they build combinations up to and including ten. Cooperatively, students problem solve and make decisions where to place their dominoes, as they attempt to build the most adding patterns that equal ten.
Encourage your students to "share their thinking" and math talk, helping their partners to "see" and realize all possibilities, as they complete their combinations of ten.
A reproducible game board for tallying their points is included as well as a visual chart for students to refer to, as they progress through the game.
Black-line master copies of the student scoring sheet ( for recording all winning combinations of ten) and recording tally boards have been included.
This is a fantastic "hands-on" addition game for your "Little Geniuses" to progress from a concrete experience with numbers to a more abstract, symbolic understanding.
For older students, this is a a terrific cooperative, problem solving activity that can be played competitvely in teams.
