The math board game, Inching Along, gets kids engaged in a fun game of measurement and addition. I don’t know about you but my kids need practice with both of these math concepts. And, the best part about this game, is that it’s so much fun, they don’t notice it’s also learning! (They’re too busy trying to win.)
Each player draws a card. It will look like this:
Adding G plus H requires some measuring. First, the player measures the line G, then the H line, and adds the two numbers together. That answer is the number of spaces he or she can move on the game board.
This is line B – it’s labeled but the ruler is covering it up.
Players measure, add, and move. The first player to the finish wins but frankly, I think everyone wins because all the players practice and improve their math skills!
Inching Along will get your kids measuring and adding in a playful way which is the best way to learn, don’t you think?
