# Match It- Inverse Operation- Level 1

Description

Get students’ brains switched on and practising pre-algebra concepts involving addition and subtraction. In this classic game of Match It, students take turns flipping over pairs of cards to find matching inverse number sentences.

Use this fun activity in numeracy rotations or as a fast finisher activity.

Laminate gameboards for a quick and effective maths rotations activity or use the black and white versions that students can decorate themselves.

Suitable for
• Fast Finishers
• Relief Teachers
• Parents
Lesson Structure
• Rotations / Group Work
