This simple but fun math game helps students to become more fluent with doubles facts to 12. It also requires students to compare numbers.
How to Play: Partner students up. Students play rock, paper, scissors to see who goes first. The first player rolls one 6-sided die. They count the number on the die and draw that number of dots under "ROLL." Students then take the addend they rolled and double it to create a doubles fact and solve. Then it's their partner's turn. Their partner rolls the die and does the same as above. Once both students have solved their doubles facts and written the sum, they COMPARE their sums.The student with a greater sum makes a happy face and the student with the sum that is less makes a sad face. A tie gets a straight face. The student with the most happy faces at the end wins!
How to set up the game: No prep is required--all you need is one piece of paper per pair and a die. Students share the same page. Could run double-sided so students can turn it over and play again. Would also make a great center--laminate and use over and over. Enjoy!
