My students love games and I know yours will too! This game will be an instant classic. Teaching tips and suggestions for differentiation included.
Domino games are a wonderful way to develop number sense. They are versatile and wonderful for differentiation. The pips (or the small dots) on the dominoes can be used for addition, subtraction or multiplication. In general, dominoes work for division as well if you used them as “factors” of a larger number to create bridges between multiplication and division. Dominoes 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.
In this game, students use their number sense to figure out the answers of the operations displayed on their dominoes, but are also required to order them. Because dominoes can be played strategically, it encourages critical thinking skills as well. I would suggest pairing students in homogeneous groups for this one, unless students are working as a team and can help one another.
