Knock it off is a game that encourages strategy, basic operations and multi-step mathematics! Students work together, or as opponents to knock all the numbers off the 100 chart!
Students take turns rolling the dice (adaptable for different manipulatives) and use the numbers rolled to create a number sentence and knock off a number from the chart based on their answer.
Includes FOUR different printable game boards (whole numbers up to 100, decimal numbers up to 1.0, fractions (tenths to one whole) and a board that represents one hundred using cents
Includes printable manipulatives cards: Double sided dice cards, Canadian money cards, decimal cards (up to hundredths place).
Includes printable marker chips (for students to place on the board) in SIX different colours!
Manipulatives are a wonderful way to make math more hands on and help students develop number sense. They are versatile and wonderful for differentiation. The pips (or the small dots) on the dominoes and dice can be used for addition, subtraction or multiplication. In general math manipulatives work for division as well if you used them as “factors” of a larger number to create bridges between multiplication and division. Dominoes are very versatile and could also be used to create fractions with the smaller number being the numerator and the larger the denominator and could be decimals where the smaller number is the whole and the larger is the tenth place. Coins are another great way to make math more hands on and to help students develop a deeper understanding of place value, and parts of a whole (fractions, decimals)
TIP: Always play a round as a class before students are expected to play independently.
TIP: Having students explain how they played or write about their experience with the game creates anchors in their brains so they remember the game the next time you bring it out. It also gets students writing about their learning and helps you understand their thinking and their comprehension of the games they play.
