Groundhog Day Math Facts Activity
This Groundhog Day Math Facts Activity is great because it is like three centers in one! You can choose whether to play the addition version, subtraction version, or both of them mixed together.
Plus, there are printable number lines included to use if your students need some assistance solving the problems.

How to Play
Since we were playing as a review, we used all of the pieces in both the addition and the subtraction set.
We spread out the groundhog numbers so that we could quickly see them, and piled up the hole and dirt equations in a stack to pull from.
We took turns pulling a hole and dirt card and reading the equation. Then we solved the equation and found its matching groundhog. If we needed to, we used the number line to help us out.
Teacher Tip: If the number lines are laminated, students can use dry erase markers to solve the equations!
We kept pulling equations and matching them up until they had all been solved!
