A fun way to allow students to build number sense through play! Additionally, it supports student collaboration (Speaking & Listening goals reinforced in Math! CCLS SL.6.1 & SL.7.1), and allows students to handle manipulatives (gaining kinesthetic learning opportunities)!
This is a great game, especially at the beginning of the year. The rules are simple; it can support your goals of setting up a collaborative, hard-working classroom environment!
Come back for more Math & Science Collaborations!
Common Core Learning Standards for this activity are included on the direction page (so students can see what concepts they are using!)
