Want a fun and engaging classroom center??? Timber Blocks are YOUR center!!!
This product comes in a color as well as a blackline version. It also has all answer keys provided. So far there are 24 different strategy games with more to come...so get them before the price goes up!
Each person picks a card (with the answers on the backs). If they get the question correct, they pick the color of card’s timber block color from the tower. If they get the answer incorrect, they don’t get to choose a block from the tower and they next student takes their turn. I like to keep the cards in a manilla envelope so they don’t know what color of card they are going to get….but you can also just have them shuffle and at each student’s turn, they just take the next top card….that part is up to you…whichever is easiest.
The object is to keep the tower from toppling and have the most points when the tower does topple. I included a point sheet for what each color of blocks is worth so when the tower does topple, each student can add up the points of the blocks they have gotten thus far. The winner gets to go first the next round.
