Are your kids farm animal fans? My kids are, so we are always doing farm animal themed activities. Using this theme is always a win, especially with this Printable Hundreds Chart!
Farm Animal Hundreds Chart
A hundreds chart is a great math tool to have for preschool, kindergarten and first graders. This simple chart can help children learn a variety of math skills including counting, place value, number patterns, skip counting, addition and subtraction.
This game can help teach children all of those skills but while they are HAVING FUN! Kids will think they are playing a farm animal themed board game, but we know that it is full of important skills.
Prepping this game is super easy. You just need to print and then cut out all of the parts. There is a board game as well as the number word cards. Grab some mini farm animals, pom poms or other manipulative.

Once the farm animal hundreds chart game is prepped, it’s time for fun.
One way that this game can be played is to turn the number cards face down on the table. Put the manipulatives in a pile and the game board in front of each child.
Turn the number cards over one at a time. Kids will identify and read the number word then grab a manipulative and cover that number on the board. This can go on until the board is full or until the child is done.
You can set a time and see how many can be found in that time.
Children could race to see who can find the number on the board first.
Play back and forth. Start on number one, grab a number card and move forward that many spaces. The next card picked will be a subtraction. Keep switching back and forth to see where you end up after 10, 20, etc cards.
Place the number cards around the room so they have to get up and run around to find them. Then they can run back and place the manipulative on the correct number on the chart.
