Make addition fact practice appealing to students with this game and follow-up worksheets, with an ice-cream theme perfect for summer!
Two versions of the game are available: one with sums up to 20 for students just learning their doubles facts and one with sums from 18-30 for students who need a little challenge. Two coordinating versions of the follow-up worksheets (great for independent practice or homework) are also included. The color-by-number page has sums up to 24, sort of a compromise between the two levels.
Directions for Doubles Scoops-a game for 2 players-
Each student gets a game-board.
The ice cream scoops are cut apart, mixed up, and placed in a stack face down.
The first player draws a scoop card. If the card helps make a double scoop on their game-board, they place it on the correct cone. If it doesn’t help make a double on their board, it is placed in the discard pile, face up.
The second player can then draw either a new card or the one on top of the discard pile. This player, also, either places the scoop on the correct cone of their game-board or discards it, face up.
Players take turns drawing scoop cards until the first player is able to correctly fill all of their ice cream cones.
At the end of the game, students check their work by reading their cones to each other as doubles facts. For example: “7+7=14.”
