This is a two-player game with very little prep! Students will practice facts and will “get up and move” while playing. When my kids play their favorite boxes to land on are the boxes with movements!
Supplies…You will need two different markers (Mini erasers fit great!) and one die. You will also need to choose a game board to print on cardstock. Laminating, or a page protector is optional, but not necessary. Game boards come in color and black and white.
How to Play…Put the markers in the “start” box. Player 1 rolls the die and moves forward that many boxes. Then player 1 solves the problem in the box they land on. I like my students to say the problem out loud, “6 + 6 = 12.” If player 1 is correct they stay put. If they are not correct they move back one space. Some boxes have a movement that students need to do rather than solving a problem. When they land here they stand up and do the movement! The movements are:
Do 10 jumping jacks.
Do 10 toe touches.
Do 10 jumps.
Do 10 high knees.
Do 10 arm circles…Arms stick straight out to the side and students move them in a circular motion.
The winner is the first player to land on, or pass through, the “finish” box.
