Activity Instructions

Have a student start on negative ten. A student rolls one dice. Have them take that number of steps forward. Repeat with the second student. The first student rolls again and adds the number on the dice to the number they are standing on. Repeat with the second student. The first student to reach exactly ten wins. As a fun twist, if the roll of the dice yields a number that causes a student to exceed ten, they go back to zero. You can also have them race to negative ten by subtracting!

Extension: Give students a coin. Pick one side for addition and one side for subtraction. (You could also create your own add/subtract coin for this extension.) The first student will roll the number dice. Then, they will flip the coin to see if they are adding or subtracting that number. Continue with the Race-To-Ten instructions.
