This apple tree addition to 10 activity is a digital, fun, learning activity to use with your students to help them practice adding numbers.
It can be used with Google Slides and Seesaw. This activity would be a great addition to math centers or can be used as an independent activity.
This apple themed activity will give students ample opportunities to practice counting, building addition equations, and solving to find the sum.
They will work on the fine motor skill of one-to-one correspondence as they point and count the apples on the digital addition mats. They will also drag and drop the numbers into the boxes for the equation.

Learning Addition Facts to 10
To use the apple addition activity, students will count the apples on each tree.
Then, they will drag the appropriate number tiles into the boxes to make the addition equation true.
There are 4 number tiles on each slide. Students will have to problem-solve to determine which 3 they will use and which number tile will not be used.
There are 20 slides included in this activity. To differentiate, you may assign students only a certain number of slides, such as 1-10 or 1-20.
You can reorder the slides to have students focus on addition facts to 5 if they are not ready for addition facts to 10. When they are ready for a challenge, you can assign all 20 slides.
This digital addition game would be useful for:
- whole group math instruction
- math centers
- small groups
- digital stations
- distance learning
- addition fact assessment
- equation building assessment
- apple activities unit of study
