Odd and Even Game for Kids

Here's a fun little Math Game for kids that uses inexpensive materials and helps kids practice the following skills:

  • Addition
  • Odd and Even
  • Tallying


DICE


ERASER DICE (10 for $1.00 at Dollar Tree)



Materials
  • dice (can be played with 2 or 3 dice)
  • paper and pencil

Directions
  • Students work with a partner.
  • Player A is Even. Player B is Odd.
  • Take turns rolling the dice.
  • Together add the dice.
  • If the SUM is even, player A gets 1 point. If the SUM is odd, player B gets 1 point.
  • Tally each round.
  • The first player to win 10 points is the winner.








Older children can multiply the dice instead of adding to make the game more challenging.


Have fun with math!
