We have developed a Lesson Plan to help teachers integrate the game into the mathematics curriculum for Level One and Level Two students (aged 5-10), where it can be used to teach and reinforce these skills:
- Addition and Subtraction
- Forming Sets of 5s and 10s
- Rotation of Plane Objects
Four children can share one game.
Children 10+ can play the regular competitive or cooperative game. They will barely notice their spatial, numerical and strategic planning skills getting a workout. Consult the directions for how to play. These 90-second videos that explain how to set up and play may also be helpful:
