Free Estimating Sums & Differences Game

Estimating sums and differences is a skill I have found students need a lot of opportunities to practice! I love to create engaging activities to help keep my students motivated while they practice! This game is great for students who need extra practice or a review! And today I would like to give it to my blog followers for FREE!

Materials Needed:

Teacher Prep:

  • Download free resource
  • Print game cards and game board on colored paper or card stock
  • Cut cards

How to Play: (directions are also included in FREE download)!

  • Students work in groups of 2,3,4 based on teacher preference
  • Students each need their own color of crayon or marker
  • Player one turns over a card
  • Solve on record sheet or scratch paper
  • Find the answer on the game board and color in the square
  • The next player follows the steps
  • The first player with 4 in row is the winner
  • Players can keep playing to see who gets the most 4 in a row!
