Let's Make Ten
Overview:
In this activity, students practice determining different ways to make 10. They work together as partners and roll dice to determine the numbers they work with. They have to evaluate their numbers rolled to find a way to make a total of 10. They color in their bars to represent the numbers they rolled. A number sentence is composed and then they move on to the next roll. Once the activity is complete, a whole group discussion takes place and all the combinations that the students found are listed on the board.
