A fun, hands-on board game to reinforce students’ understanding of the ‘Friends of 10’.
Use this board game when your students are learning about the pairs of numbers that make 10.
Students take turns to roll the die and move around the game board. Each time they land on a number, they must calculate how many more are needed to make ten. Then, they collect the same number of gold coins as the number needed to make ten e.g. if they land on four, they will collect six gold coins.
The player with the greatest number of gold coins at the end of the game is the winner!
This teaching resource includes:
- an instruction card
- a game board
- a set of gold coins
- counters for play.
