Before and After (Material Master 5-4)



Each student takes turns to draw a card from the stack of cards. The student chooses the number before or after the drawn number then covers this number on their game board. If the student cannot cover a square the next student has their turn. The drawn card is replaced in the pile so it can be drawn again. The game ends when a student covers all their numbers. Examples. Play the game again.
