GAME INSTRUCTIONS

 

This game lesson involves counting and making change.

 

Items needed:

- Coins: quarters, dimes, nickels, pennies.  In place of the actual coins, you can print coins - using our printable play money.

- 1 Die

- Game board (see below)

 

 

There are two different games that may be played.  Each game is played with two players, or 'partners'.

 

 

GAME 1: Race to 25

1. Partner one roles a die, places that amount of money in the Money Rolled box, and adds it to his or her Money Changer sheet.

 

2.  Partner one trades coins to show his or her amount in the lowest possible way, and says I have ____ cents.

 

3. Partner two checks the total and then takes his or her turn.

 

4. Whomever reaches 25 first wins.

 

 

GAME 2: Going Broke Game

Both partners start with 25 on their Money Changer sheets.

 

Partner one rolls the dice. He or she must subtract that amount of money shown on the die. He or she then must trade coins to subtract by saying to partner 2, I would like to trade a quarter for 2 dimes and a nickel. Partner 2 gives partner 1 - 2 dimes and a nickel for the quarter.

 

Partner 1 trades again until he or she can subtract the amount shown on the dice. To pay the bank, he or she places the money in the Money Rolled Box for Partner 2 to take.

 

At the end of his turn, partner 1 states the amount left on his game board. Partner two checks the total and then takes his or her turn.

 

The first person to run out of money wins.
