Students will love counting animals for their paddock/pond/pig pen game board, as they learn to identify the dot patterns on a dice (subitize) and count-out quantities. Students can compare and discuss which paddock has more/less candles.
These game is perfect for a farm themed unit of work! Each game is played to the same rules, they just differ in featured animal - you can teach students the rules of play and then let them work independently through the 4 variations.
It is appealing to students for its cute pictures, colorful design and quick-pace play. The game is simply rolling, recognising the number and counting out sets of animals. At the conclusion they find their total. You could adapt this easily to challenge higher ability students by incorporating target dice and addition concepts.
Each of the 4 files feature a teaching tips page, a detailed instruction sheet, game boards, game cards, a worksheet and cover page. The cover page can be printed and used to help organize your game/activity tubs/pouches/packets or folders!
