When printing the cards for the game please print double sided so the cards will have a picture on the back. This lets the students know which stack to put them in.
What you need:
• This game, printed and laminated
• One die
• A small token for each player
How to play:
• Have each student roll one die to see who goes first. (2-4 players)
• Place your token on the start square.
• The first player should roll the dice and then move their token the correct number of squares and then take a card from the stack of cards that are the same design as the square you landed on and follow the directions on the card. All other players should follow.
• Check your answer against the answer sheet and if you got the answer correct keep the card in front of you, if not put it at the bottom of the stack.
• When all players have reached the finish line whoever has the most cards wins the game.
