Tenzi and Pocket Farkel

Grade Level: 6+

Each player rolls the dice (at the same time) and looks for the number they have the most of - they "claim" that number and pick up any dice that are not on that number.  They continue to roll (as fast as they can) any dice not on that number until finally they are all on the "claimed" number.  Once this happens, they yell, "TENZI!" The first person to yell it wins. Slow it down and explore the frequency of the dice rolls to explore probability and statistics.  With many variations in game play, these forty dice are full of possibilities for educational fun.  Create your own rules or use them to make multiplication and addition more fun! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Timeline-Historical Events

Grade Level: 6+

JFK’s assassination, the 1st step on the moon, the last crusade ... Can you put all these events correctly on the timeline? To begin, one card is randomly drawn from the pile. This is placed in the middle of the table, date-side up and is the starting point of a chronological line which will slowly be built by players. The first player then chooses one of their cards and place it before or after the initial card. The player's card is then turned date-side up. If the player was right, it remains on the table. Otherwise, the card is discarded and a new one must be drawn to replace it. Play proceeds clockwise. The more cards which are correctly played, the harder it is to correctly place new ones!  The first player to get rid of their cards wins!
