In this super fun math game, your students will exercise their math brains by adding numbers to make 100! If your kids are working on addition up to 100 or even 1000, this game would be a perfect whole class game or pair-game at Math centers.
In this game, a pair of students compete to be the closest to 100 after 6 rounds of rolling. Each player rolls a die, and chooses the value he or she wants to give to their roll. For example, if you roll a 1, your roll can equal a 1 or a 10; if you roll a 2, your roll can equal a 2 or a 20. Then they roll again and choose a value for their roll. Last, they add the two roll values together to get their sum. They can fill in their number sentences in the boxes provided, and show work using base ten blocks, etc. in the open space next to the boxes. Each player continues for 6 rounds. Each player has to think logically about which value choice would bring them the closest to 100, without going over 100. If you go over 100, you BUST!
You can differentiate this game and easily make it 1000 or BUST! Just change the value of each roll: if you roll a 1, your roll can equal a 10 or 100; if you roll a 2, your roll can equal a 20 or 200.
My kids LOVE this game! Have fun :)
