Closest to 100!


Learning aim of game: addition

You will need: a pack of cards with no tens or picture cards in.

How many players: 2 players


How to play:

Shuffle the cards and then deal out 6 cards to each player.

Each player then chooses 4 cards only to make two 2-digit numbers.  They then use these 2 numbers to try and add together to get as near to 100 as possible. Players cannot go over 100. The total nearest to 100 wins the round.

For example if a 2,7,6 and a 4 are chosen then 24 +76=100

Adaptations: choose a different number like 50.

Start at 100 and choose 4 cards from 6 to make two 2-digit numbers that when subtracted from each other are closest to 0
