As a special little thank you to visitors, I designed this simple game to wish you a Happy 100 Day!

The “Dots and Boxes” game was first published in 1889 by Édouard Lucas.

I thought it would make a quick, easy and fun game of strategy for students to play anytime, but specifically for 100 Day, as I made a 100-box grid.

Children choose a partner and take turns connecting 2 dots by making a line between them.

The object of the game is to be the last person to connect the last line that will complete a box. When you complete a box, you get to write your initial in it.

When all 100 boxes have been made, students count up how many they have with their initial in them. The one with the most boxes is the winner.

The strategy comes in being careful not to make a line that will make the 3rd side of the box, allowing your opponent to complete the box by drawing the line that makes the 4th side.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a delightful 100 Day celebration.
