Save The Caterpillar
Try this printable game and help youngsters practice adding one-digit numbers.
Skills: One digit Addition, Probability
Materials: Pair of dice, Save the Caterpillar game board, (one caterpillar per player), 20 chips such as(coins, bingo chips, etc.) for each player.
Number of Players: Two or more
How to Play:
Each player places 20 chips on the numbered spaces of his/her
caterpillar. Players can place the chips any way they’d like as long as
all 20 chips are used.
- The first player rolls
the dice and adds the total of the two dice. The player removes ONE
marker from the numbered space that matches the sum of the dice. If the
player does not have a chip on the numbered space that matches the sum
of the dice, the player loses a turn.
- Play continues in this manner, with each player taking a turn at rolling the dice and removing one chip at a time.
at any time a player wants to change the arrangement of the chips,
he/she can do so instead of taking a turn at rolling the dice. You must
wait until it’s your turn, and you can only move one chip per round.
- The first player to clear all the chips off his/her caterpillar is the winner!
All kids love to play games. Helping them to be comfortable with math at an early age will increase their chances of become successful math students as they get into the higher grades.
