Odd and Even

Write a range of numbers – some odd, some even – on about 30 blank cards and shuffle the cards.
 Partner A times partner B as she/he sorts the cards into separate piles of even and odd numbers.
 Once the piles are checked, the cards are shuffled and the partners swap roles.
 See who wins after two or three turns each.
DIFFERENTIATION
 For younger children, spots arranged in groups of two or three can be used on fewer cards.
 The numbers can be chosen depending on the age and ability of the pairs, i.e. single digit to six digits and decimal numbers. Remember to use tricky numbers, such as 33,332 or 44.3, and use 0 on the end of some even numbers., e.g. 530, 53.0.
