"Link-On" is an excellent "hands-on" activity, to help students explore their understanding of numbers in a very concrete/pictorial way.
Students choose dominoes that are ONE MORE or ONE LESS than the previously played domino and strategize to be the first player to place all fourteen of their dominoes onto their game board.
To encourage decision making and cooperative skills, students can work as "partner teams" and problem solve together, as they progress through the play of the game.
Young children love the friendly competition as they verbalize their math and place their dominoes onto the "Linking Game board".
A Scoring Sheet is provided, allowing students to record their math.
Colorful, printable game boards are perfect for including in math centers or for whole-class activities. Black-line master copies of the game boards are very useful for sending this activity home for "home-play" practice and for math journals.
Demonstrate the game rules using your smart board for effective whole class learning.
The simple, easy to follow rules, allow your "Little Geniuses" to be playing, in no time!
