These clip cards are a great way to test students’ ability to subtract from a given number of objects using a physical multiple choice system. The pack includes 40 cards covering questions from ‘one less than’ to ‘ten less than’. The given possible answers have been carefully chosen to allow teachers to spot any misconceptions students may have about the topic.

The idea of this activity is that students work out the answer to a given question, then clip a clothespin/ peg or a paperclip to what they think is the correct answer.


This activity works equally well when the cards are laminated. Students simply circle the correct answer using a dry erase marker.
