HOW? Cut out 30 cars from cardboard using the attached pattern. Write a letter (word, math fact) on each car. On four cars write the word “crash.” Mix up the cars and place them face down on the floor or table. One at a time, children draw a car and identify the information on it. They may keep the car if they are correct. If they pick “Crash,” they must return their other cars to the bottom of the pile. Be sure to click Downloads in the menu to the left for a printable pattern.
