This game is a version of the classic card game "War". Students play with a partner. Each player selects a card from the top of the pile. The player with greater number keeps both cards. Play continues until there are no more cards in the draw pile. The person with the most cards wins!
There is an optional recording sheet included to keep students accountable or to use as a quick check whether or not students understand the term "greater".
Top It is a game from Everyday Math. This game would correlate well with First Grade, Everyday Math, Unit 1.
