A math game for single digit addition within 20 and subtraction from 10 for your alien activities unit! Use independently as math fact fluency flash cards or to play an individual game as a companion with the Aliens Love Underpants read aloud or any other space themed activities. (For example, if using as an early finisher activity, students can try to see how many cards they can get before centers is over.) Also included is an alien math worksheet if you would like some additional accountability for your students.
Or, students can play with a partner to play these games:
- War – each play flips over a card. Solve the addition or subtraction problem. Whoever has the larger number wins (or smaller number, to change things up!)
- Kaboom or Bang! – see below for how to play
What’s Included in the alien activities?
- Single digit addition cards for numbers 0-10
- Single digit subtraction cards for 0-10
- Math fact fluency games printable worksheet
How to Play:
- Spread the cards out into a pile.
- Choose a card from the pile
- Read the card. If you can read the card, keep it. If you can’t, put the card back. (If they are playing with a partner or group, I suggest having them help the student read the word if they missed it so they can learn it for next time). :)
- Special Cards
- Aliens! – Put all of your cards back into the pile
- Planet Earth – Draw another card
- Lose a turn – If playing with a partner or group, you lose a turn
- Skip – If playing with a partner or group, you skip the person who has a turn after you
★ Pick and choose which pages you want to do, print, laminate and you're all set! You can time students for several minutes to see how many problems they can do, and use to inform instruction. Or they can complete it as a math center or during morning work.
★ Use all the cards or choose which cards to use based on the math facts your students are learning.
★ Also included are cards in black and white to save on ink!
