A-Mazing Tens is a favorite 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.
For differentiated instruction, two follow up game activities have been recently added. Game boards Sets include an EASIER version for younger students and for those who require some additional support.
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 competitively in teams.
These three different games are perfect for any math center or for whole class play.
