Play a cool double dare game! Students figure out addition doubles on dry-erase boards.
Finding addition doubles is an especially mind-bending math challenge. What’s an addition double? When two of the same numeral are added together, the sum is called an addition double. For example, 8 is an addition double because 4 + 4 = 8.
Here’s one way students can play Double Dare Addition. Each player uses an individual dry-erase board with a Crayola® Dry-Erase Marker. You can get the class started, and then let students take turns leading the game. The leader says the sum of an addition double (such as 4).
All players write the addition double that makes up that sum (2 + 2). Erase with a tissue and play again. Repeat with different doubles until everyone can solve LOTS of problems.
