A fun game to have on hand for fast finishers.

This is a 2 player game. You can play scissors, paper, rock to decide who goes first.

Each player takes turns connecting dots with horizontal or vertical lines. The aim is to avoid trapping the animals in a cage.

The player who draws the last line boxing an animal in, traps the animal. Once an animal is trapped, write the player’s initial over the top.

The winner is the player who traps the least animals.

These game boards can be laminated and drawn on with whiteboard markers to make them re-usable.
