This fun, math card game is based on the popular card game, WAR. The objective of the game is to have the highest coin amount to win your players cards. The cards focus on counting mixed coin amounts from 5 cents to 99 cents. The game contains 52 cards (50 coin cards and 2 WILD cards. It can be played with 2 or 4 players. All coin images are realistic and include a mixture of heads and tails.
I have also included variations for the game as well as other ideas that the game cards can be used for. You will get lots of different uses from these game cards!
This game would be appropriate for any student that needs practice counting coins (grades 1-2). It would also be useful as a life skills math activity for jr. high or high school students with special needs.
Print out the game on cardstock, cut out and laminate for extra durability. I have not included an image for the backs of the cards, as I work with high school students and it wasn't necessary. You could easily "cutesy" the backs with fun stickers or stamps to appeal to your specific students.
