For this activity you will need:
- faked feathers
- plastic eyes
- wooden cube or dice
- Make the birds using a clothespin, 2 plastic eyes and some feathers.
- Design a number line at a paper board. Optionally you can laminate the number line.
- Make your own dice using a wooden cube and your marker. Otherwise, you can use an authentic dice.
How to play:
The game is played by 2 or more students, depending from the range of the number line. Every player throws the dice and moves on his/her bird so many numbers as indicated from the dice. The player that reach the end number of the number line is the winner!
I also used this game for just one student as empowerment for the necessary learning support at maths. The aim was to reach herself/himself at the end of the number line by succeeding the number recognition at the number line and the correspondence with the numbers of the dice.
