4th LEAP session : Classify it.

Classify it:

2 to 3 players are needed to play this game. Learners had 8 different colours counters per player and four dice.

Instructions: Each player took turns to roll the dice and added them up. The player then chose a classification hexagon on the board which matched the number they had rolled. They covered the hexagon with a counter. The players took turns. If a person couldn’t find a matching hexagon they passed the dice to next person. The game finished when all the hexagons were covered. The winner of the game was the person who managed to cover most of the hexagon.

It encourages mathematical intelligence of learners.
