We have shared quite a few second grade learning activities this school year. I love to come up with enrichment activities based on what my second grader is learning at school. Anything to make homework easier, right? The polar bear craft that we made for today’s Second Grade Math Games turned out to be a fun way to work on Base Ten Operations and adding 10’s and 100’s to two and three digit numbers.

Polar Bear Math Games
- What is your digit?
- Is your digit even or odd?
- What is 10 more?
- What is 10 less?
- What is 100 more?
- Starting at where the polar bear lands, count on by 2’s, 5’s, 10’s, and 100’s.
- Start out by saying “We’ll add 100 to the number where your bear lands.” Then, practice counting backwards by 2’s, 5’s, 10’s, and 100’s.
- Use two polar bear crafts to practice single and double digit adding and subtracting.
