You are a miner ready to strike it rich and find a ton of gold. However, you are new at mining and have not yet learned the skill needed to find only gold. As you mine you may find coal or stone. Don’t throw them away, they have value too. Keep track of your finds by circling them on your gold mine finds sheet. At the end of the game, total your points to see who won.
Players must start at the gold mine and make their way to the end of the game by rolling the dice. On each turn students need to pick a game card from the pile. If they solve the problem correctly, they can record their find. The miner with the most points at the end of the game wins!
In this Smarten-Up file folder game, students will review their plus 9 facts as well as find the missing addend for common addition problems. At the end of the game, students will practice their addition skills again to find their score. Then teachers can encourage students to compare they scores against one another and find the difference in score between players!
