This game is GREAT for practicing greater than/less than with your students. Simply print off the number cards, cut/laminate them, and start playing!
How to Play:
Deal the number cards as evenly as possible to each player. Have the players keep their cards in their hands face DOWN.
Mix up the directional cards and place them in a stack face down.
Turn over one of the directional cards. This will let the players know which type of numbers to slap.
Each player will put one of his/her cards face up in the middle. Take turns going around.
If the player puts down a card that follows the pattern of the directional word, the first person to “slap” the card (or, put their hand on the card), will get to keep the card AND all of the cards underneath it.
After the players go through all of their cards, they are to choose a new directional card.
Directional word: “Less than 10”
Players put down cards 47, 199, 73, and 3. The first person to slap the “3” will get to keep all of the cards.
