●Whiteboard, poster or large piece of paper with the following written on it:

0 – open mouth wide

1 – stand on one leg

2 – two hands on knees

3 – two arms and one leg up

4 – down on all fours

5 – fingers in ears

6 – finger on nose

7 – hand on top of head

8  – jump up and down

9  – sit in a chair

10 – lie on the floor

11 – spin around

12 – start singing

13 – stick tongue out

14 – whistle a few notes

15 – start clapping

Players take turns being the leader, who acts out an addition/subtraction problem. For example, to act out 4+ 8, the leader would get down on all fours and then stand up and jump up and down. The first player to perform the correct action that corresponds to the answer is the winner. In this case, 4+8=12, so the winner would have to start singing.
