Mathematical benefits

Before or After is a fairly simple game that will be interesting and challenging for children who are just beginning to count and understand the sequence of numbers.


Numeric Sequence: With each turn, students will be required to know the number before or after the card that is flipped. This gives them the opportunity to practice their knowledge of the numeric sequence. This game can be appropriate for preschoolers and kindergarteners who are capable of playing games that involve turn taking.
