Our first game in the series, is a dice game called Jackpot!
Based on the game Yahtzee, where players work to rolldifferent combinations, students roll to do the same…all while sharpening their math skills. Using 4 dice, students work to roll evens, odds, composites and build other number combinations.
Recognizing that there is a wide variety of math abilities in one classroom, I created two different score cards. One is designed for younger or lower-ability students that uses math terminology to ask students to perform addition and subtraction functions. For older or higher ability students, I designed a different score card that uses math terminology to perform all four operations. Both half-page score cards are included in this product, perfect for students’ Interactive STEM Notebooks. Also included are game play instructions and standards alignment (CCSS Math).
Just provide 4 dice (Did I mention you can download these dice for free?), earn the highest score and win the Jackpot!
