Over the Hill
Great for number sense and operations.
Group students into pairs; give each student a copy of ‘Over the Hill' template and each pair get 3 dice. Right hand click the image to use this as your template or get the students to draw their own.
Students take turns rolling all 3 dice. They are to add or subtract the amounts shown on the rolled dice and then cross off those sums or differences on their “hill” number line.
They must go in numerical order starting at 1 and will cross off as many as possible in that roll.
When they cannot create any more numbers from the rolled dice, it is their partners turn.
Each player’s turn starts at the end point from the previous turn.
The first to reach 18 wins.
EXAMPLE: Player A rolls a 3,4,6. They can cross off 1 (because 4-3 = 1 ), 2 (because 6-4= 2 ), and 3 (because 6-3 = 3 ) from their worksheet.
They cannot make a sum or difference of 4, so now it is player B’s turn to roll.
Each player’s turn starts at the end point from the previous turn. The first to reach 18 wins.
