Two players face off over a colorful game board, in a checkers style race to the finish, gathering like terms as they go! The first player done gets a 20 point bonus...but wait, no-body has won yet...players must then evaluate each total for a given value. Finally, players add up the total values for a final score. Highest score wins of course! Students catch on quickly, and begin using strategy within a few minutes.
Included with the game is a colorful game board (or black and white), player pieces ready to cut and fold, a recording page for keeping score (one per student), game rules, and helpful hints for classroom use.
This game is perfect for practicing combining terms with x and evaluating in a fun non-worksheet way!
