What's the math in these games?
In order to know many items are hiding, children must remember how many there were, determine how many there are now, and figure out how many were taken away, a key part of composing and decomposing number (adding and subtracting). As children gain more experience with these games, increase the number of objects used. Children also enjoy doing the hiding — in this case, they must work to make sure their partner correctly finds out how many are hiding!
