__0 – 12 Addition & Subtraction Game__

We made this maths game to practice our quick mental addition and subtraction using the numbers zero to twelve.

__Aim of the game:__To turn over your cards first (to practice mental addition & subtraction using small numbers).

__What you need:__**-**Two sets of number cards, 0 to 12 – one for each player

**-**Two normal 6 sided dice

__How to play:__**1.**Sit facing you partner and lay your cards down in order

**2.**Turn you cards over so that your numbers are facing

down

**3.**Roll both the dice and look at the numbers that you

have rolled, you can either add them together and

turn over the answer or you can subtract the smaller

one from the larger one and turn over that answer

(each roll has two possible answers)

**4.**Take turns and keep turning over your answers that

you decide on

**5.**If you roll and cannot go because you have already

turned over both of the possible answers you miss a

turn

dice (you will have to make more cards for the extra

answers
