Playing this number order game is fairly straight forward. Choose the number strips you would like your students to work on, choose these carefully not to overload your students with a large number of cards. Students begin by identifying the numbers on each strip then write the number that comes next or before. They can also have a number line in front of them to help them figure out the next number.
Another way you could use these cards is to play a scavenger hunt game and tape all the strips around the room. Then, have the kids looking for the strips around the room, and completing each strip and placing them in a container. You could also add an element of mystery and surprise by telling a short story to have the kids ‘solve the puzzle’ and finish all the cards before a timer runs out. It’s a great way to encourage team building and playful activities within your classroom environment.
