What better way to practice a little independent math in March than with a basketball-themed game for your math center?!
In this game, students take turn rolling a dice to score points. They then add the number strings of points together to figure out their scores for each quarter, half, and the game. Students also practice comparing their scores using >, <, and =, and they draw their scores using tens and ones.
A page of challenge questions is also included if time allows for you to review other skills or to differentiate instruction for fast-finishers.
Because of it's engaging nature, quick demonstration, and limited prep time required, this game is a great activity to leave for substitute teachers as well!
