Why Lesson Planet?
In this addition game instructional activity, students work with a partner and write the numbers 1-9 on paper and put them into a bag. Kids pick a number from the bag and write it in the table under Addend 1, Addend 2, and Addend 3. Students then find the sum of the numbers they drew and write that number in the table. Students then explain the strategy they used to add and why.
