This colorful little freebie provides practice adding and subtracting to 12. One board is for addition the other side subtraction. To prepare, simply print out the two game boards and instructions. You will need 2 standard dice and a place marker for each player (I like to use small animal erasers).
ADDITION VERSION: Use the colored animal print board.
1. Each player rolls the two dice and adds the numbers. The
player with the greatest number goes first.
2. Players begin on start and take turns rolling the 2 dice.
3. After a player rolls he/she adds the numbers on the dice and
moves forward to the next space with that number. If there are
no more spaces with the sum rolled, the player doesn't move on
4. To move to the final space a player must roll, and add, doubles
(two of the same number).
SUBTRACTION VERSION: Use the black & white print board.
Play as the addition game, but roll both dice twice to generate 2 numbers. Subtract the smaller number from the larger number to determine the space you can move to. To reach finish a player must roll numbers with a difference of 0, 1 or 11.
