Science, Earth and Space Science

Grade 1- 3


Students will use weather-related materials to practice with more and less, addition, and subtraction.


  1. Reproduce, laminate, and cut out the Raindrop Numeral Cards on pages 33 and 34, making four sets of ten.
  2. To play the game, shuffle all the cards together and deal four of them to each of the two to four children playing the game. The remainder of the deck is placed facedown in the center of the players. The object of the game is to obtain four cards that add up to ten. The players take turns drawing a card and discarding another until someone's cards total ten.
  3. You may wish to have the students lay their cards face up on the table and help one another with counting at first.
