Math Fact Fun Game #2: Double Down
Objective: Adding doubles
Materials: Two dice per player, one piece of paper and one pencil per pair
How to play: Give every player two dice and split students into pairs. Time students so that each round of play lasts five minutes. When you say, “Roll ’em!” everyone rolls their two dice simultaneously. Anytime someone rolls doubles, they say, “Double Down!” Both students in that pair should stop rolling, then add the value of the dice, and record the sum under the player’s name who rolled it. Students keep track of the scores. Whoever has the most points at the end of five minutes wins.
