Balloon pop - Addition of numbers within 10
Children love balloons , especially those that can whizz and pop !
This is a game to practise addition of numbers. It is a good exercise for speed and accuracy as well as you can select the speed of play.

Content : This is a Microsoft Powerpoint based teaching tool and contains 2 versions of the game.
1) Additions within 10 - interactive version
2) Additions within 10 - automated version

The interactive version is useful for individual, small groups or math centres. In the automated version , the slides will play and advance automatically - useful for keeping the students meaningfully engaged for a busy moment.

A math addition question is presented for each balloon. The balloon will start to become bigger as it is blown, and then pop. The answer will be shown after the pop. Challenge your students to come up with the answer before it pops !
