Turkey Bump!

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.
