Noughts and Crosses - Game

PDF | 3 pages|Grades: K, F - 2

A template to use for ‘Noughts and Crosses’.

Ideal to use as a small group activity to encourage step by step logical thinking. This resource includes an instruction card, two re-usable game boards and optional noughts and crosses counters. The children can either draw the noughts and crosses with a marker or use the counters.

The aim of this 2 player game is to be the first to make a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line of noughts or crosses.

Students are required to roll the dice to decide who will go first and who will choose o or x. They then take it in turns to draw either an ‘x’ or an ‘o’ on the board. The first player to line up three of their symbol in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line wins.
