Addition and Subtraction

Description

This game is a perfect addition to your math rotations! It is a great game for teaching addition of small numbers and also probability. To play laminate the game boards (you will need 1 for each player). Each player will also require 10 counters, or playing pieces.

The counters are to be placed above the numbers the student predicts they will roll (up to 4 counters can be placed above the same number). They then take turns rolling 2 dice and adding them together. If that number has a counter above it they remove it from the game board and roll again. If the player does not have a counter above it their turn is over. The winner is the first person to”clear the decks” (remove all their counters).

Students will soon learn how difficult it is to roll a 2 or 12 due to the limited number of combinations available to make these numbers.6 different gameboards to choose from.

Or you could just fill the board and remove a cube each time that number is rolled and the person to remove the last cube is the winner!
