Game Play: This game is for children who are learning to add three single digit numbers using mental math skills. Children solve the equations on the peanuts and feeding the correct elephant.
Game Assembly: Mount elephants to the file folder and cut out the peanuts for playing pieces. Laminate for durability. Mount title page to outside of the file folder to create a storage pocket for the peanuts.
Expansion Ideas: Encourage children to look for numbers that make 10, or can be easily combined. For example when adding nine, show children they can easily add 10, then mentally take one away. The goal of these mental operations is to speed up the addition process.
