 # Roll and Build Bingo

## Curriculum Goal

#### Kindergarten: Demonstrating Literacy and Mathematics Behaviour

• Demonstrate an understanding of numbers, using concrete materials to explore and investigate counting, quantity, and number relationships (#15).

## Context

• One-on-one, pair-based game.

## Materials

• Roll and Build Bingo game board (Appendix A)
• Two dice
• Unifix cubes in two different colours. Players will be given cubes of the same (note: 95 is the absolute maximum number of cubes needed per player)

## Lesson

• Player 1 tosses two dice and finds the sum of the two numbers (e.g., 3 + 4 = 7). They will then build a tower on the corresponding square using that many unifix cubes (e.g., a seven-cube tall tower on the number seven square).
• Player 2 takes a turn, repeating the same procedure.
• The game continues until someone gets a bingo, either by occupying four squares in a row or five squares in a column.

## Look Fors

• Are students able to accurately comprehend and represent number in the three different forms?
