# Greatest number to 100

### What you need:

• A pack of playing cards. (Ace = 1, Jack = 0)
• Paper and pencil to keep score.

### What to do:

Place the cards in a pile face down between the players.

Each player selects two cards and arranges them to make the largest two digit number.

For example 5 and 2 can be arranged as 52 or 25.

The player with the largest number wins a point. The winner is the first player to win 5 points. The cards are placed at the bottom of the pile.

### What to expect your child to do:

To read the two digit numbers and recognise the biggest number.

### Variation:

• The aim can be to make the smallest two digit number.
• Ask your child: How many tens are in each number? Which number is closest to 50?

### He Kupu Māori:

 biggest nui rawa smallest iti rawa pack of cards pūkei kāri
