It’s time to collect some jewels! In this game, you’re a cave climber collecting treasure. But, watch out for the bats! If you run into them, they’ll be sure to take away your gems. Good luck!

In this fun online addition game, students practice addition within 10. The support of a ten frame helps students connect the abstract concept of equations and numbers to a concrete example.

To play, students must first collect the gems by jumping around the cave. If they get hit by a bat, they have to start the level over. As they collect the jewels, they are added to a ten-frame. Once all the jewels are collected, students must fill in the missing addend in an equation. The ten-frame provides a visual reference to help students solve the problem. If they answer correctly, they move on to the next level. Each level features more and more bats around which students must maneuver.

With this engaging game, students practice important concepts such as algebraic thinking and fluency of addition within ten. The game element keeps students excited to practice their addition facts. They won’t even notice they’re learning!
