Played the same way as traditional war. There are 4 of each number 1-12. The student will take turns flipping over the cards and deciding who has the larger tally. The student with the larger number should say, “___ is larger than ___” that should agree/disagree and play again, until someone is left with no cards.
I print these on cardstock, double-sided, and laminate them. Then I put then in a small Tupperware container and let me kids use them during math groups, when finished early, and indoor recess. This is a great way to practice the skills of tallying, counting by 5's, counting on, and good sportsmanship.
