Activity Instructions

The game is played in pairs. Two cards are drawn from the pile of 1-100 cards. Each student receives one card. The students decide who will stand on the mat and who will give directions. Student A stands on the mat on the number that is on their card. Student B directs them based on the second card but does not reveal the number. The goal is to direct the student on the mat to the second number with directions such as, ‘add 2’, ‘add 30’, ‘subtract 4’, ‘subtract 50’, etc. When the student on the mat reaches the number on the card, the students switch places. (See who can get their partner to the correct number in the fewest moves.)
