Bowling for Facts!
Today during math stations, the kids went bowling for addition facts...without the real pins and bowling balls, but still pretty fun! This is a partner game, and each player gets a bowling mat and a handful of colorful chips (I call them mini bowling balls). The players take turns rolling 2 dice, then adding the sums of the numbers rolled. When one of the players rolls a number found on one of their pins, they "knock over" that pin with a chip. The first player to have all pins knocked over wins the game!
If you'd like a copy of this game, there is a precious, new and improved version uploaded to Teachers pay Teachers for $1.00! It includes directions and 10 game mats--perfect for math stations!!!
