“Snaking” Around includes 2 fun “snake” games for students to play in a small group or with partners. Once your students are familiar with the directions, both games are great for students to play after independent math practice or at a math center.
Snakes in the Grass game:
Throughout the game, students practice adding and subtracting 2-digit and 3-digit numbers with regrouping as well as their basic facts. The goal of the game is to be the first player to get rid of his/her snakes in their backyard. Each player starts with 20 snakes (in their backyard) on his/her score sheet.
To start each turn, the players roll one die. The player looks on the code sheet for the number rolled and follows the directions accordingly. On each turn, players will either add more snakes to their backyard, subtract snakes from their backyard, or lose their turn. Students have a fun time seeing their number of snakes increase and decrease throughout the game.
Included: All materials come in color and black and white. (6-sided dice are needed for both games.)
