Children drag and drop the robots with questions onto robot placeholders featuring the correct answers. 

Addition to 10

This addition to 10 game is aimed at young children who are being introduced to the concept of addition. Children are presented with a series of addition questions in the conventional format which includes the addition sign. Two boxes feature the corresponding number of animals which need to be added together.

After children successfully solve each calculation, the animals move to a number line below. This provides useful reinforcement of the concept of addition.
