Solar System Top Trumps I created to be used for Science/Maths (Maths would be more about number recognition).
This activity pack contains 40 Top Trumps playing cards based on place value up to thousands.
Blank 'Top Trump' style template that can be used throughout the curriculum. My Year 4 class used them for creating Gladiator Top Trumps as part of our Romans topic, however they can be used for everything from describing the properties of shapes in Maths to the features of different countries in Geography.
Children use their knowledge of subtraction to work out the information on the top trumps cards. They then have to use the top trumps to fill in the answers on the worksheet. There is another version of this activity suited to girls, High School Musical.
Here is a set of blank top trump cards on pop stars on pop stars along with a rating sheet. Pupils had to complete the rating sheet ranking each star out of 20 on various categories then design questions on the cards which had the same answer as the rating. Swapping card sets with another group at the end to play each others games. I used them for BIDMAS/BODMAS but they could also be used for anything such as percentages, fractions, rounding or basic number.
I made these cards to help my lower ability year 4 but equally they would do to challenge more able KS1 or just use to keep the children thinking and quiet after a maths lesson! They incorporate 3 different groups of numbers, 2 and 3 digit numbers, addition and multiplication. The children need to decide what is the highest value on their card and play their opponent as they would normal top trumps.

Top trumps game designed to aid year 5 and year 6 mental maths in a fun way. The list consists of a single word document. I have printed these out on card and laminated them for durability. I have used my resource with many children over the years with good feedback from both pupils and parents.

A game of Top Trumps in which students have to compare test scores for different Simpsons character children. They have to compare between FDP in character's own skills and then across characters in order to trump their opponents. Best played in twos or threes.
Just what the label says! dinx67 posted a link to a great minibeast pack on the Woodland Trust Nature Detective website. The pack includes a lovely set of top trump cards. They're a little small and hard to read for younger children, so I've used the sites criteria and numbers to create a simplified version.
A top trumps style game but with common birds that you are likely to see in your school grounds. Compare wingspan, weight, number of eggs laid and where the bird featured in Big Garden Birdwatch! Loads of fun and perfect if you're taking part in Big Schools' Birdwatch
Designed for mainly Early Years as a number comparison activity as the information on there is quite basic and numbers are low, but able to be edited to include more categories / information if you wish. Pictures / facts courtesy of Google, BBC and Wikipedia!

A Maths Top trumps activity for solving equations. Adaptable to suit any level of pupils as it's on a word file and all you need to do is adjust the questions accordingly. Pupils take it in turns to select a characteristic and solve the equation. Values are compared and the winner takes the cards. I&'ve found this effective with 2 or 3 players in a group. Only rule in adapting is that Bane has the highest strength as he&';s 'ard. ;-)
This pack includes 56 cards to print out. The questions include Algebra, percentages, fractions and BIDMAS.
Top trump cards taken from math sticks and adapted for Place Value. Conceptual variation used to promote reasoning and speaking and listening skills.
Order of Operations game. Differentiated by colour, red being easier, orange being medium difficulty and green being more challenging. Usually I would give pupils either a red and orange set OR an orange and green set, play in pairs, can show working in their books if you want a record of their work! Also suitable from KS3 depending on ability.
I have decided to create a variation of the top trumps game. I have used the characters from the high school musical to make it more appealing. There is an instruction sheet. 48 playing cards - 6 of 8 different characters. I have also included on page 2 covers to go on the backs(page will have to be printed 8 times). Once stuck on card and laminated should look nice and colourful.
Played in the normal way - can be adapted to suit any topic eg. substitution, fractions, percentages. Cut the cards out and pupils normally play in groups of 3 or 4 meaning about 9 sets for a full class. Time consuming initially but well worth it and can be used over and over if laminated
Use these for any subject you like! Couldn't find a simple one so I made my own. 8 to an A4 sheet: space for a picture a title and 4 categories to score. Use for places in Geography, people & places in history, set maths challenges... just print onto card and cut out. Print them blank for your class to make their own for great revision or Starter activities.
