Your students will have many ways to practice sums of ten with this set of 30 superhero cards. Each card has four numbers on it. Students will determine whether any combination of two or three of the numbers totals ten.

Task cards provide four options for using the number cards:
* Play a board game
* Sorting
* Graphing the result of the sort
* Read the Room/ Scoot (recording sheets and answer key

The activities can be differentiated: find two addends that total ten, or find either two or three addends that total ten.

This resource will support your teaching of CCSS K.OA.A.3, 1.OA.C.6., and 1.MD.C.4

Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).
Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
