Build It with Like Colors is a fun math center or small-group activity! In this center or small-group activity, students will practice "add to" problems by building towers of linking cubes and adding them together to find the solution. All the ways to make the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are included. There is a recording sheet provided for students to choose four cards to demonstrate their knowledge. On the recording sheet, they will show their work and write a matching equation. The equation cards are included for students that need additional support. The cards can also be used with your own math mini-lesson to demonstrate "adding to" or as a way to reteach "adding to" during RTII.
