All you need is 2 dice and maybe an expo marker! Laminate and cut and let the kids learn and have fun. I have included a color version of the game and another version of the game without as much color if you do not want to use your color ink. An answer key is included so the students can check their answers. However, due to the nature of the games, the answer keys are example answers.
This can be a 2, 3 or 4 player game. The students can even play this independently. The students roll two dice, add up their number, and then find their roll on the game board. They answer the question, check their answer on the included answer sheet, and initial their square if they get it correct. I have included two different directions pages and a blank directions page for you to choose how you want your students to play the game.

4. Reduce the sentences for clarity or to improve the readability.
