Product Description
Turkey Plus 8 is a fun way to give children practice with the addition plus nine strategy.

In this game, players take turns rolling a die. They must then add eight to the number they rolled and a 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, center game, or a fun thing to do on Thanksgiving Day. 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+9 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+9 which requires the use of a 12-sided die.

Having three different versions of the game board allows for differing ability levels to compete at the same game.

Additional materials needed to play:
- a die
- markers (such as pennies or beans)
