Global Math Games

PDF (683 KB|7 pages)


Looking for math activities to get students up and moving? Use these math addition games to weave some kinesthetic math into your practice!

This download includes directions for two games; one from Finland called Molkky, one from Germany called Sechser-Spiel. Both will get your students up and moving as they practice addition or multiplication. Along with the directions for each game are recording sheets.

I have modified these games to better suit younger students. Sechser-Spiel comes in three versions in this download, allowing you to differentiate for your own students. This game can also be played with regular dice, instead of blow up yard dice as I suggest, allowing you to play this game as a center activity or in the classroom.

Molkky has been modified with a lower target number, as it can take quite a while to play in its full version.

If you have any questions about these games I have provided a link in the download where you can read more about them. The links provides rules for the full version of both games. You can also always email me at: travelteachlove@gmail.com I am happy to answer any questions!

Looking for more global themed activities? Check out the rest of my store. You will find global themed small books and STEM lessons.

Leave a review to tell me what you think of these games to help others hear about these great games!
