# Which Way Around

### Purpose:

The purpose of this activity is to learn to order numbers to 100

### Link to the Number Framework:

Number Sequence, Stage 4

### What you need:

• A pack of cards with the picture cards and tens removed. (Ace =1)
• Pencil, Paper

### What to do:

• Draw 7 boxes beside each other. Write 10 in the first box, and 100 in the last box. 5 boxes between.

• Place the card in a pile.
• Take turns to turn over two cards.
• Choose how this number could be written. eg. If a 2 and a 6 were turned over they could be written as 26 or 62.
• Each player chooses where to record the number. Write the number in a square. Once written the order cannot be changed.
• The next player has a turn.
• A number can only be recorded is there is an available space.
• The first player to have all the boxes filled with the numbers in the correct ascending order is the winner.

A number line or a tape measure with numbers to 100 can be useful to help children order the numbers.

### What to expect your child to do:

• Be able to accurately sequence random numbers to 100.

### Variations:

Draw 7 boxes on top of each other. Write 100 in the top box, and 10 in the bottom box. Players fill in the 5 boxes between.
