Gobble, gobble, it's turkey time! Here's a game board I made to use during these next few days before the Thanksgiving break. It's the game of Bump. If you don't know how to play, here's the directions. It's for 2 players. They will need a game board, dice and some unifix cubes, about 12 each of their on color. Player 1 rolls the dice, adds up the amount and then places a cube on the answer. Player 2 rolls the dice, adds up and places a cube on the answer. If player 1 has a cube on the number, player 2 may bump player 1 off. Play continues. If a player gets a sum that they already have made, they get to put a cube on top of their other one. This "locks" in that number and then they can not get "bumped" off. A variation of this game for the higher learners is to use 3 die and then the student uses both addition and subtraction to get an answer. Kids LOVE this game and ask for it often. They loved seeing the turkeys on it.
