Fahrenheit Weather Card Game
Not many card games practice negative numbers, but this one uses the concept of temperatures to practice the up and down of numbers between 32 and -32. The deck includes integer cards and 5 different types of wild cards. Game play is easy: play cards that follow the direction of the previously played card. If it is a positive number, the next player plays a positive number card that is greater; if the card played is negative, the next player must then play a descending negative number. If you can't play the appropriate positive or negative number, you might be able to play a wild card. Blue Cold Front cards set the temperature falling; red sets the temp to rise. Forecast wild cards are red and are played along with a number card to reset the temp direction. Frost wild cards are blue and freeze play to the next player. Zero wild cards set the temp to zero degrees and the player then chooses the temp direction. This card game can go up and down like the red on a thermometer. ~ Donna
