Games (from Investigations)

* Five in a Row: 
   Students get a gameboard that looks like a bingo board but with only numbers and no letters.  The object of the game is to cover five numbers in a row.  They get a stack of cards.  The flip the first three cards over into three separate piles.  Using those three cards, they chose two of the cards to make a sum that is on their card.  They write the equation on the provided sheet and cover the sum with a marker.  They continue to play flipping three new cards over as they take turns.  Once they cover five in a row they are finished.

* Tens Go Fish
   This game is played exactly like Go Fish, but instead of making pairs of the same number the pairs are totals of ten.

* Totals of 10 (or 20):
   Students use number cards to play this game.  They lay out the cards in 4 rows of 5.  The object of the game is to find totals of 10 (or 20).  Once they find a sum that works, they fill in the empty spaces with the remaining cards. They continue to play until they have used all of the cards or found all of the totals of 10 (or 20) that are possible.

* How Many More Make 10?:
   The students use the same game board used in Five in a Row. The object of the game is to cover the board. Each pair of students will get two dice.  Students will take turns rolling the dice.  They need to choose the number on their game board that when combined with the number they rolled makes 10.  For example, if I rolled a 7, I would cover up a 3 because 7+3=10. 
After they cover up the missing addend, they need to write the number sentence on their white board.  Then, the next student takes their turn.  The game continues until they cover the whole board.

* Sums and Differences:
Each student gets a recording sheet.  The sheet has three columns: My Roll, My Sum, My Difference.  Each set of students  get two dice.  Students take turns rolling the dice.  They write the two numbers that they rolled in the "My Roll" column.  Then, they add the two numbers together and write the answer in the "My Sum" column.  Finally, they subtract the smaller number from the larger number and write the answer in the "My Difference" column. After they fill in the chart, the next student gets to roll. The game continues until they complete the sheet.
