These math games create high levels of student engagement and rigor while helping kids practice math vocabulary and addition facts to 20 (technically up to 24, since there are a couple of extra flaps on the game board). Using the classic GUESS WHO game boards, students ask yes or no questions to try and guess their opponent’s mystery addition fact. It takes a lot of skill to not only formulate questions but also eliminate facts based on their opponent’s answers. The games are perfect for math centers or early finishers!
PLEASE NOTE: This resource includes templates for an original version of “Guess Who?” sold on Amazon, as well as this specific newer version of the board game: Guess Who on Amazon. Other versions may have different dimensions for the flaps, and therefore the cards will not fit.
This download includes 8 game sets that can be used for differentiation or to switch out as your students progress through their facts:
-Doubles and Near Doubles
-1’s and 2’s Facts
-3’s and 4’s Facts
-5’s and 6’s Facts
-7’s and 8’s Facts
-9’s and 10’s Facts
-11’s and 12’s Facts
-Mixed Facts (a combination of all of the above games)
Each of the 8 versions includes:
-Game Board Addition Fact Cards (to fit into the game board flaps)
-Mystery Addition Fact Cards (contains the number that opponents are trying to guess)
A “Cheat Sheet” (a visual reference sheet for students to use if they get stuck thinking of questions to ask) is also provided. The more they play, the less they will need the Cheat Sheet!
“Is the sum equal to ___?”
“Is the sum greater/less than ___?”
“Is one of the addends a ___?”
“Is the sum even/odd?”
“Is the sum a doubles fact?”
Please see the preview for each of the game versions.
