Chain Link Number Bonds


Students use paper (2 different colours), scissors & glue to make paper chain number bonds. Attach a card at the top or bottom to record the sum.

If you don’t have access to coloured paper you could get students to colour the paper before cutting into strips.

We made bonds for 10 & a sum of 20.
(Although I think my little boy was more excited about cutting, glueing & linking, than making sums!)

Below  you’ll also find a link to a YouTube clip “Friends of Ten.”
