Students, working in pairs, take turns rolling two dice. Each student must choose a different colored marker or crayon to use. The student outlines and fills in a rectangle that matches what they rolled. For example, if the student rolled a 4 and 3, that student would fill in a 4x3 rectangle on the grid. The player then writes the total number of squares inside the rectangle. A player loses a turn when his or her rectangle cannot fit on the game board. Play continues back and forth...
