This is a very simple game or math center activity.
You will need 2 dice, 20 assorted plastic coins and one game board for every 2-3 students.
Great review for counting coins and a good introduction to coordinate grids. Even if students are not formally working coordinate pairs , most students get this because it is like the game Battleship.
When students roll the dice they can make 2 different ordered pairs from the numbers they have rolled. They can quickly see that they need to show flexibility in thinking to rearrange the numbers as needed to capture a coin.
I hope you enjoy this quick and easy activity! Carolina Girl
