Towers of Ten

In math we've been working on "Understanding Addition." Today we played a game called Towers of 10. Each child had a different colored set of interlocking cubes. Then, the children took turns rolling two dice. They added up the number and used their cubes to show that number. Then their partner added their cubes to the first tower. As soon as they had 10 cubes on their tower, they would begin the next tower. When three towers were build, they recorded what their towers looked like on their recording sheet. Finally, the children added number sentences to show their equations.
