This Doubles Game will help your students practice the math addition strategy of doubling while celebrating President's Day.
In this game, players take turns rolling a die. They must then double the number they roll and place a chip on the answer. The first player to cover all their numbers is the winner. If time runs out, whoever has the most numbers covered wins.
This game would make a great extension activity or center game. You could even send copies home for students to play with their families.
This set contains three versions of the game:
1) Game boards going to 6+6 which can be played using a standard 6-sided die.
2) Game boards going to 9+9 which can be played using a 10-sided die.
2) Game boards going to 12+12 which requires the use of a 12-sided die.
Having three different versions of the game board allows for differing mathematical ability levels to compete at the same game.
Additional materials needed to play:
- a die
- markers (such as pennies or beans)
