This resource provides learners with engaging ocean themed math centers to practice subtraction facts to 10. This packet has 5 sets of Subtract the Room equation cards. Each set has 12 task cards. There is a recording page for each set of cards. The cards and recording pages have matching graphics. The ocean animal images include a crab, an octopus, a sea turtle, a shark, and a whale. These activities work well with ocean, summer, and beach themes.
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 equations. When they find a card, they write the equation and sum in the correct space on the recording sheet.
These activities help learners develop subtraction fluency and support 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.
