Here are two engaging games for students to use to practice identifying the rules of patterns (single step-addition, subtraction, and multiplication). Just print and laminate the games and the answer keys. Provide each pair of students with two dice and 20 two-color counters (or similar game markers), and the game is ready for play!
**Directions: Player A rolls two dice and finds the sum. Find the pattern that is next to the sum. Use a marker to cover the rule for the pattern on the Game Board. Player B takes a turn.
If the rule already has a marker on it, the player can BUMP the marker off of the board and replace it with his/her own marker. Once a player has put two markers on a space, the space is LOCKED and markers can no longer be BUMPED. The player who places all ten markers on the Game Board first is the winner!
**These games are fun to use as centers or as activities for your early finishers.
