Take Ten addition card game


A great game for practising combinations of 10. Gameboard available in colour or black and white if you would like to put on coloured card.

Play this game with a partner or in a small group. Divide a pack of cards up between the number of players and place on the ‘deck’ box on the game board.

Take 4 cards from the deck. Turn them over and place them on the number boxes. If you can make a total of 10 collect them and put them to the side.  Replace with cards from the deck. If you cannot make 10 choose one card to replace. Put it at the bottom of the deck and choose a new card from the top. The winner is the person with the most cards in their saved pile at the end of the game.

Change the game to suit your students. Students may only make a total of ten using 2 cards or more capable students can use 3 or even 4 to make 10.
