Make Ten Memory

  • 2 or more players
    1 deck of cards-remove the face cards and the 10s (Note: Ace = 1)

    Goal: Create sums of ten

    • Shuffle the cards and place them face down in rows and columns.
    • The first player turns over a card and determines how many more they need to make ten.
    • The same player turns over a second card.
    • If the sum of the two cards is ten, the player removes the cards.
    • If the sum of the two cards is not ten, the player turns them face down again in their original position.

    Extend the Thinking: Tell how many more or how many fewer than ten the sum of the two cards is.

    • The other player(s) take a turn.
    • Play alternates and continues until all of the cards have been removed.
    • The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.
