A whole class active game that encourages learning through a physical setting.
In this fun, active game, students snatch each other’s tails and obtain them using their basic number facts knowledge. This can be adapted to suit any numeracy focus and to help students revise what they have learned.
Accompanied by other active learning games in Active Learning Resource Pack.
