Here is a super fun holiday math game to practice addition and subtraction facts to 20 or multiplication and division facts to 100. The only materials needed are crayons, one board game and two moving pieces. Follow my blog to receive notice of more of these math games for different holidays!
Directions for Two Players:
- Each player chooses a different color of crayon.
- The first player places the moving pieces on two numbers at the bottom of the page. The player adds or multiplies the numbers and colors a light bulb with the answer.
- The next player may move only one moving piece to a different number. The moving pieces may also be on the same number. This player colors the bulb with the answer. Players continue to take turns in this manner.
- The goal is to color in five bulbs in a row while blocking the other player from getting five in a row. If the player wants the 18 bulb, they must figure out which numbers will get them to 18 using their subtraction or division skills.
I hope your students enjoy this game!
