Scissors to cut out cards
Number of players: 2
Instructions: Each student is issued 7 addition cards with the rock, paper, and scissors symbols on them. The students simultaneously say “rock, paper, scissors, shoot.” When the players say “shoot”, both players are to put down a card of their choice. Rock beats scissors. Scissors beats paper, and paper beats rock. Very importantly, each player is to keep her finger over the addition answer on her card so that her opponent doesn’t see the answer on her card. The loser of the rock, paper, scissors asks the winner the addition problem on the loser’s card. If the winner correctly answers the problem, she collects the pair of cards. Otherwise the pair is discarded. The person with the most pairs at the end of the game wins.
