Activity Instructions

Two students line up at “I”. The first student rolls a 12-sided die and takes that number of steps. The student does something with the word he/she lands on: e.g., says it 3x while clapping or spells it while jumping once for each letter. The second student takes a turn in like manner. Continue until one student reaches the end of the mat or to some predetermined spot, like halfway through the mat. (Grades K-1)

Variations: Travel may be by rows or by columns. Older students may use 2 six-sided dice and multiply the two numbers to determine how many steps to advance. (Grades 2-3)
