Ice Cream Addition Activity
This digital ice cream addition to 10 math activity is a fun spin on our ice cream addition to 10 task cards. Students can use this digital version of the activity when they don’t have access to printables and dry-erase markers.
This is perfect for practicing math skills with blended or distance learning. For this activity, the students will build an addition sentence with number tiles instead of writing the addition sentence.
Students will be able to practice their addition skills to 10 with this math game. They will also get to work on creating addition equations, counting, and one-to-one correspondence. This activity is easy to use and will be super fun for your students.

Working On Addition Facts to 10
For this ice cream addition to 10 activity, students will count the number of ice cream scoops on both cones. Then, they will add them together and drag the appropriate number tiles into the boxes to make the ice cream addition matching equation.
There are various number combinations, all adding within 10. There is not a specific order of difficulty with the number of cones and ice cream scoops. However, to differentiate this activity, you could re-order the slides to put all of the addition problems to 5 together and all of the addition problems to 10 together.
You may want to assign a certain student or small group of students to work only on addition to 5. Some students may need a challenge and work on addition facts all the way to 10.
This activity is great because the students are working on their addition problem-solving skills. They can focus on the structure of the equations and using the correct numbers.
This may be a beneficial activity to use when beginning or reviewing addition to 10, as the students will grasp the concept of adding and using the equation before writing equations on their own.
This ice cream addition to 10 activity also encourages the students to pay attention to detail. The number of ice cream scoops on the cones vary, so sometimes the first cone has more and sometimes the second cone has more. They must be attentive to detail and use their counting skills each time to get the correct answer.
I hope your students enjoy this cool, ice-cream-themed addition to 10 activity. It would be great for summer learning to keep those skills fresh!
