Cards to learn and play with

Cards can be used for a lot of games to strengthen skills like math and make fun assignments with it.

Picture 1: More, less or equal:

In the middle of the table, there are 3 blocks with the signs <, > or = on them. With each turn, the players have to turn a card. Looking at both cards, they have to see if it’s more, less or equal and have to take the right block. If it’s right, they can give their card to the other player. If it’s wrong the other player can give his card to the player who got it wrong. You can compare it to the game jungle speed.

Picture 2: the right sum

You only use 1 to 10 for this game. The players have to turn two cards around at the same time. When they add or deduct the cards and the solution is on one of the blocks, they have to grab it. The one who grabs it can give his cards to the other player. The player who had no cards remaining is the winner of the game.

Picture 3: making 10

You only use 1 to 10 for this game. Each player has a stack of cards. They have to get rid of them by making 10 with the card that they have and a card in the middle of the table. (5+5, 3+7, 8+2…)

Clock and assignments

Picture 4:

To start this game you have to put the cards on the table like a clock. 1 card is being placed in the middle of the circle. You keep dividing the cards until you have one card left. This card is placed next to the stack in the middle. You have to look at the card and count where it should be on the clock. On this spot, you take another card.  When you get a king, you have to place it in the middle of the circle and take a card there. The game is finished when all four kings are found. When you have no cards remaining on the clock, you won the game.
