Learning from home – a dice game

You will need 2 or 3 dice for this game (2 is easier, 3 more difficult).

The aim is to get the lowest score.

Each player takes it in turns to roll the dice and add up their score. Children might count every spot, or use calculating skills e.g they might know 5 and 5 make 10 and 1 more is 11 or 6 add 1 add 2…that’s 7,8,9. Make sure you model this thinking too.

Write your scores down in a simple table. Who will get the most points?
