Before class send copies of the game board above to each student and ask them to prepare 4 crayons – one for each team colour.
Each turn a team chooses the number and either the centre square, the inner ring, or the outer ring of a box. All teams will then fill that space with the colour of the speaking team.
There are three possible ways of winning. The game is won when a team is able to complete a line of three. This can be three centre squares, three outer or inner rings. Teams can also win with a row of coloured spaces that decrease by size with each box. The third way to win is by completely filling one box with your team’s colour, i.e., the centre, inner and outer ring of one box is all one colour.
PERMISSION IS GIVEN TO EDIT AND PRINT THE APPENDICES FOR USE IN THE CLASSROOM.
