Jump, little frog, jump! Help these frogs jump into the pond before they reach the dotted line. Then, count how many frogs jumped away.
To play the virtual subtraction game, click on the frogs and they’ll jump into the water. Then, answer the question. Pick the number that shows how many frogs jumped into the water.
In this ribbeting online subtraction game, children practice the concept of subtraction or “taking away.” The lily pads also create a nice example of a five-frame. The visualization of the frogs disappearing helps reinforce how subtraction works. Whether you’re introducing the concept of subtraction or your students are more advanced, you can use this fun game to encourage learning. Here are a few activities to try with the game:
- Ask students to fill in a five-frame each time they play.
- Ask children to write out a subtraction sentence to represent the game.
- Ask students to make up their own game using a ten-frame instead of a five-frame. Children can cut out small paper frogs and lily pads or use other animals to create their game.
