#### Game

This game is designed to have students add in multiples of 10 and apply their knowledge of basic facts to do this. For example, 5 + 2 = 7, so 50 + 20 = 70.
The most important teaching point is to ensure that the students perform the addition before they move their counter. If they are on 120 and roll a 50, they must do the calculation first rather than simply moving their counter along and counting 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 to get to 170.
One way of encouraging the students to use addition is to ask them to record each move in a table.

Other ideas to consider:

• You could use an ordinary dice and make 6 the “lost paddle”, 1 = 10, 2 = 20, and so on.

• The students don’t have to reach exactly 200 to win.
