PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Carrots is a card game with 52 cards in the deck (for 2-4 players), where players are trying to win by planting the highest number of carrots in their garden in each game. Students grow their carrot garden, but also try stop other players from growing a bigger crop by planting weeds in their garden, by stealing their carrots, setting caterpillars loose, or giving them a bad weather day. To win a round the player must plant five carrot cards in their garden. Yet the real winner is actually the one with with the most carrots.
BEWARE OF RABBITS!

As an easy addictive game to learn, it is packed with mathematical and critical thinking skills, as players need to consider what value cards to use, when to withhold good cards and when to sabotage, or steal from another player. Carrot card values are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, which allow students to base their mathematical thinking around adding and subtracting this number range.

It is perfect as a Maths independent activity, and you will have trouble getting your students to stop playing. You will however know they are thinking strategically and having fun too. Great for teaching respect, kindness and social skills as well, with a touch of gardening thrown in.

Included:
Card deck and rule for printing, uncut
Carrot Box Template
