Being able to make a ten is an essential, foundational math skill that students need a lot of practice with. I'm always looking for make a ten activities to keep it fun for my students and help them master this skill, so I created these games to help them.
This set includes 6 "make a ten" math games.
Lemonade Stand - In this game, students collect lemons when they make a ten by spinning two different spinners. The first one to collect 6 lemons wins.
Ice Cream Pile Up - Students roll a die and try to find an icecream scoop to make ten and then add it to their cone. The highest cone wins.
Bubblegum Tens - Students take turns choosing addition fact cards. If their card equals ten, they get to draw a piece of bubblegum in their gum machine. The first one with ten pieces wins.
Make Ten Roll and Cover
Melons of Tens - This game is played like "Memory" or "Concentration."
55 - This game uses a deck of 55 cards (included) Students have to try to make a ten with the card they draw and the card on the discard pile, but look out, they can lose cards, turns, or even steal cards from their opponents in this game. But if they draw the "55" card, it's an automatic match.
A student recording sheet is also included that is optional, but can be used with every game!
