Double Bubble – Doubling Game

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 4 pages | Grades: 1 - 2

A fun game for students to practice the doubles addition strategy.

Double Bubble is a fun game to use when teaching doubles.

Students use their knowledge of doubling the numbers from 1–6 to cover the numbers in their bubbles. The winner is the first person to cover all of their numbers! This is a great math center activity when practicing addition strategies.

Print the game on cardstock for added durability.

This game is best played in pairs; however, you could always project the resource on your interactive whiteboard and play as a whole class.

However you choose to play, your students are sure to love learning doubles while playing Double Bubble!

Differentiate your math lesson with two different levels of play!

Target your students’ individual ability levels by choosing an easier or harder version of the game. Version 1 uses a single die and involves doubling numbers from 1–6 only. Version 2 uses two dice and involves doubling numbers from 1–12. Use the drop-down menu to choose your download.
