Sums of Ten Math Game

Here's a fun little MATH GAME for kids to play to help them practice their Addition and Subtraction Facts.

Sums of Ten Math Game


Only a few inexpensive supplies are needed:
  • 10 pennies
  • 1 paper plate
  • pencil and paper
Players: 2


7 + 3 = 10  or  10 -7 = 3


Directions
  • Player 1 turns a paper plate upside down. He/she 'hides' some of the 10 pennies under the plate and puts the remainder of the pennies on top of the plate.
  • Player 2 counts the pennies on top of the plate and has to calculate the number of pennies under the plate. If correct Player 2 gets one point.
  • Then the players reverse rolls. Player 2 'hides' some of the pennies under the plate and puts the remainder of pennies on top of the plate. Player 1 has to calculate the number of pennies under the plate. If correct Player 1 gets one point.
  • Players continue taking turns and tallying their points.
  • The first player to get 10 points is the winner.
Variations:
Choose different sums (totals) to play the game with depending on the ages and abilities of the students.

Have fun with math!

    1. Yes, but using "found" materials from the home is such a nice way to be creative and frugal. 8^)
