This game can be adapted to be individual or in pairs.
Students are given a target number to write in the box in the left.
Students then take turns at picking up the playing cards, they write the value in the first box. When they pick up the second card students add or subtract to help them reach their target number – they then write the new total into the next box.
e.g Target number 20: 3 13 23 22 19 20 – in this case students would’ve pulled out a 3, 10, 10, 1, 3, 1.
They have 12 boxes to get the number. If neither player reaches the target number the cards are refshuffled and played again.
The first player to get to the target number gets a lego block. The first player to build their ten frame is the winner.
