How to Play
Children should place the football subtraction cards in a pile facing down. When he/she draws a card from the pile, they will read the math problem and then solve the subtraction equation.
When the student is confident in their answer, he/she will then place the football card underneath or on top of the football field goal that is the correct answer to the subtraction equation.
