Get your little learners up and engaged in practicing addition facts to 10 with these fun and exciting Earth Day themed math centers. This resource takes the popular Add the Room activity to another level. Students use a domino graphic to determine the addition equation represented by the number of dots on the domino.
This packet has 5 sets of Earth Day Domino Add the Room cards. Each set has 10 cards. There is a recording page for each set of cards. The cards and recording pages have matching Earth Day graphics. The graphics include kids recycling plastic jugs, kids properly disposing of trash, kids holding a model of the earth, a girl with a reusable shopping bag, the earth surrounded by hearts, and the earth surrounded by a reduce reuse recycle symbol. This resource can be used for Earth Day or at any time during the year.
Print, laminate, and cut out the equation cards. Make copies of the recording pages.
Hang the cards in places all around the room. Give each student a clipboard, pencil, and recording page. Learners search the room for cards with dominoes. When they find a card, they write the equation and sum represented by the number of dots on the domino in the correct space on the recording sheet.
For example, if a card has a domino with 5 dots on the left side and 2 dots on the right side, learners write 5 + 2 = 7 in the correct space on the recording sheet.
This activities help learners develop addition fluency and supports the Math Common Core Standards for Operations and Algebraic Thinking.
Thank you for looking at this resource. I hope you and your learners enjoy these activities.
Happy Earth Day!
