Use this fun game to practice all four operations and/or order of operations.
Students roll two dice. They add, subtract, multiply, and/or divide the two numbers shown on the dice. If the answer appears in the grid, they cover it with a counter. Each player is only allowed to cover one space on their turn. The first player to cover four numbers in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally), wins!
To make the game more challenging, use more dice and order of operations. You can also use 10-sided dice to make things a bit more challenging.
This is a great activity to have in a math center rotation to practice fact fluency.
Use the drop-down menu to choose between color, low color, black and white, or an editable version.

Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - ...
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
Add up to four two-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all pr...
Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangul...
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explai...
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.
