Scoop It Up! is a fun addition and subtraction game for students to work on creating number sentences and finding solutions.
The students will each use a "Scoop It Up!" mat to help create their number sentences. The mats are color coded so the students place the correct ice cream scoop in each place.
The top scoop is orange. These scoops have numbers 16-30 on them. (This ensures the students will not end up with a negative value when subtracting).
The middle scoop is green. These scoops will have either an addition or subtraction operation sign on them.
The third scoop is blue. These scoops have numbers 1-15 on them.
Finally, there are ice cream cones included with the answers ranging from 1-45.
Also included is a recording sheets for students to write down their number sentences and solutions.
We recommend printing this activity on cardstock and laminating for extra durability.
