Promote NUMBER SENSE
with Forest Friends Find Tens
You will promote problem solving and number fluency when you engage your students in this fun, fast paced math game. The object of Forest Friends Find Tens
is to collect the most number combinations that add up to 10. Students will spread the double sided cards out with the forest animals face up. They then take turns flipping a card over to reveal the number on the other side. All students are watching for combinations that add up to 10. When a student sees one, s/he calls out, “10!” After proving that s/he has indeed found 10 (e.g. 6+4), s/he collects the 2 cards and adds them to her/his pile. But beware! There are dangers in the forest. Any player that gets SKUNKED by revealing a skunk instead of a number, must return all of the cards in his pile to the cards in play.
Forest Friends Find Tens
is aligned with the CCSS.
This game can be changed in any number of ways to practice other skills and to provide the challenge your students need. For example, you could instruct your students to turn over 2 cards at a time, thereby increasing the pace of the game. The desired sum can be adjusted up or down to make the game more appropriate to the age and stage of your students. Change the operation used or require 3 addends. You get the idea. Just let your creativity take over.
