Numbers Race


Form teams of 10 players (ideally). Each person on the team gets a number on a 3×5 card or slip of paper from 0 to 9. The leader then calls out a random number. For example, we’ll use the number “108”. The students holding those numbers – 1, 0, and 8 – run out in front and display the numbers to the leader calling them out in the correct order. Try 1,237,582 and so on. The first team to be in place, in the right order gets a point for their team.

For re-use make up A5 cards, in a different colored paper for each team and laminate them. Don’t forget to distinguish between 6 and 9 – perhaps a line under the numbers.
