Adding Integers Game

For the past few years, I've been using a game that I made up to introduce adding integers.  I named the game "Close to Zero" because the object of the game is to be the player with the score the closest to zero.



I have the student play the game for 2 class periods until they get really good at the game (and calculating their score).  In calculating their score, they are learning how to add integers-- how sneaky of me!

I have even had students go home and play this game with their family!  This game is great for grades 6-8.  I have a power point presentation to explain the rules. (click on the link above)
