Deck o’ Dots Duel

Materials:  Selected Level of Deck o’ Dots Cards (red, yellow, green)

Directions: Divide the selected set of dot cards in half between two students. Each student will flip a card, similar to the game “war.” The person with the higher amount wins the two cards.

Encourage students try to figure out who won without actually “counting” each dot and explain how they know their total.

Challenge: Have students flip two cards, add up their sum, and then figure out who has the higher sum.
