Race to the "Sum"it is a math game for 2-4 players. Taking turns, each player rolls two dice numbered 1-6 and then adds the numbers on the dice. The player then locates the answer (the sum) in their column on the game board and places a marker. Play continues, and each player's marker moves up or down according to the solution to the addition problem. Students review addition facts while trying to be the first one to reach the "Sum"mit. The game is easily made more complex and challenging by replacing the original dice with two dice numbered 5-10.
Two game boards are included; one for problems where the sum rolled is 2-12, and one for problems that have 10-20 as the sum. It is a fun and exciting way for students to practice addition facts without doing a "drill and kill"activity. Complete directions, suggestions, and adaptations for the game as well as two Race to the "Sum"mit game boards are part of this five page handout.
