How to Keep Score in Bowling – A Real-life Application of Following Directions and Addition Skills
Back in the “old days”, people who bowled at the bowling alley were given a paper score sheet, and it was up to them to keep score to determine the winner of the game. Today the scoring is all done by computer, and if one can read the numbers on a monitor, one can determine who won the game. Most young people today do not have a clue about how to keep score in bowling.
This resource is designed to change all of that. Talk about a real-life application of following directions and addition skills…this is it.
