If your students like playing “War” card games, they’ll love TOP TRUMP PETS! You’ll love it too, because with each card drawn students solve two equations for an unknown number and compare those numbers to a third number—lots of math facts practice in the 45 card deck!
Students each take a card. Player 1 finds the unknown values in 2 number sentences and compares that number to a third number on the card. He/she calls out the color name of the greatest value. Other players check the value of that color on their card. The player with the greatest value wins the cards from that round.
