Gameboards: copymaster 1 (one per student)
Students play the Five Plus game in pairs:
- Each student begins with a gameboard, some counters and a die.
- Taking turns, the students roll the die, add the number that is rolled to 5 and a counter is used to cover that number on the students gameboard. For example, if a 4 is rolled, 5+4=9, so a counter is placed over the number 9. If the resulting number is already covered on the board, the next player takes their turn.
- The winner is the first student with all the numbers on their gameboard covered.
