Students will have fun practicing factor/multiple skills, prime/composite identification skills, and the Rules of Divisibility with this simple board game! It's for 3 - 4 players. Put it in a center or put it into your math game rotations.
Print, copy, and laminate the game board, game pieces, and Question Card deck, one set for every 3 - 4 students .
Cut apart the game pieces and Question Card deck. *
Place the shuffled Question Card deck in a stack, face-down.
Each of the 2- 3 playing students will need one game piece.
A non - player student, designated “The Checker”, will need a calculator at hand.
How to Play:
1. Everyone begins on “Start”.
2. On a turn, a player chooses to move his piece one or two spaces – his choice.
3. “The Checker” turns over a card from the deck and reads the question to the player.
4. The player answers the question about the number he landed on; he also tells why he believes his answer is correct.
5. “The Checker” will verify the answer as correct or incorrect, using the calculator, if necessary.
6. If the player answers correctly, he may stay on his space until his next turn.
7. If the player answer incorrectly, he must move back to where he was before this turn; i.e., he will move back one or two spaces.
The next player(s) will each repeat steps 1 – 5.
Be sure that “The Checker” is a player during the next game.
The winner is everyone who has fun!
