Fast Fact Squares: A strategic game of math facts!

Be the player with the most squares at the end of the game by adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing.

This game is great for a variety of ages, whether they are just learning their addition facts (adding 1 through 6), are practicing all of their addition, subtraction, multiplication and/or division facts, for those who know all of their facts but are practicing their fluency...or for those who just like strategy games!

This game is great to incorporate into your math lesson or throughout the day as a fast finisher activity. Students and teachers alike will also love it as an indoor recess game. Students may not even realize they are practicing their facts or how much strategy is really involved!

Materials Needed:

•Game Board

•2 dice

•Pen or pencil

Object of the Game:

•To be the player with the most colored squares

How to Play:

1. Decide which player goes first by rolling the dice. The person with the highest roll goes first

1. First player rolls both dice. They may either add, subtract, multiply or divide the dice.

1. Player finds their answer on the game board and draws ONE line by connecting any two dots that surround that number.

1. Next player’s turn

1. Play continues back and forth

1. When a player connects two dots that closes off a square, they color in the square and earn a point. This player gets to roll again!

1. Once game board has all squares colored in, player with the most points wins!

Examples

•Player rolls a ”6” and a “2”

•Connect dots that surround a “4” (6 – 2 = 4)

•Connect dots that surround a ”12” (6 x 2 = 12)

•Connect dots that surround a “3” (6 ➗ 2 = 3)

•Connect dots that surround an “8” (6 + 2 = 8)

Challenge

•Another option for keeping score is that each player earns the points that they square off.

•For example, if a player squares off a “12” square, that player earns 12 points.

•This adds in more strategy for squaring off higher numbers as well as additional practice for adding!
