How to Play the Game

  1. Students take turns rolling a die and moving their counter the allocated number of squares on the gameboard.
  2. If a student lands on a Tool Kit square, the student takes the top card from the scenario card pile and reads the scenario out loud to their partner.
  3. After reading the scenario, the student chooses the best strategy from the Tool Kit Poster to use to solve the problem.
  4. Finally, the student explains to their partner why they chose that strategy and moves to the square referenced on the game board.
  5. The students must roll the exact number to hit the finish square on the game board.
