This is a fun St. Patrick's Day Subtraction activity that students can do independently or with a partner!
Materials needed: shamrock recording sheet (included), shamrock spinning sheet (included) spinner or pencil/paperclip.
Students use one of the shamrock spinning sheets to spin two numbers. The top number gets written in the first pot of gold and students subtract the second number they spin, on the bottom spinner. Using the data sheet students record each number sentence and answer.
There are 6 spinning sheets included (numbers go up to 18). This activity can be differentiated based on the subtraction abilities of the students.
