These domino activities include independent math games that students can play during centers and math rotations. They would be great for fast finishers, too! Grab a set of dominoes, print your pages, and have fun.

By placing these pages in sheet protectors or dry erase pockets, these domino activities can be reused many times with different results.

This resource also includes a Google Slides link. Once you make a copy and assign the activities to your students, they can drag and drop dominoes or colored dots into place and then complete the math skill.

Dominoes Activities

Domino Addition

Students will find the total number of dots on a domino. This includes options for both vertical and horizontal problems.

Domino Subtraction

Students will find the difference between the number of dots on both sides of the domino. This includes options for both vertical and horizontal problems.

Odds & Evens

Students will find the total number of dots on a domino. Then students must determine whether this is an odd or even number.

Domino Comparison

Students will draw two dominoes and find the total number of dots on each domino. Then students will compare the two totals using >, <, or =.

Domino Families

Students will draw a domino and use the two parts of the domino to create a fact family. They will record two addition and two subtraction problems that can be made using the numbers in the fact family.

Domino Line-Up

Students will draw six dominoes and find the total number of dots on each domino. Then students will rank the dominoes in order from largest to smallest.

True or False?

There are four student worksheets. For each, students look closely at one student's work and determine whether the answers match the dominoes shown or not. They will circle whether each answer is true or false. Answers are included for each worksheet.

What’s Missing?

There are four student worksheets. For each, students are shown one half of a domino and given a total sum. Students must determine the missing addend, or how many dots are needed to match the total shown below each domino. Answers are included for each worksheet.

Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. For example, which of the following equations are true and which are false? 6 = 6, 7 = 8 - 1, 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, 4 + 1 = 5 + 2.
Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 + ? = 11, 5 = ▯ - 3, 6 + 6 = ▯.
