Math Game with Dice & Other Resources

This game is a variation of a game I saw on Itty Bitty Love. We played the simpler version last week; he loved it so I figured he'd love it even more with two dice.

I thought he would stop after a number "won" or made it to the bottom row but he was so excited he played almost to the end. Not enough snake eyes to keep his interest. :)

At the bottom of the column, he wrote the "winner" and circled the number. You'll see that sevens won first place and threes came in second.
Other resources used today -

This video explaining Hanukkah and the Maccabean Revolt.

A map of Egypt, of Africa, and of the world.

We began the discussion on metamorphosis, complete and incomplete, and will get to these resources later in the week.

-Complete metamorphosis: egg to larva, pupa to adult, like the butterfly life cycle - make sure to also print the Can You Find It? pages. Thanks for the free resource, Jojoebi!
-Incomplete metamorphosis [Hubby, the flyfisherman, is most excited about this one] is egg to nymph, straight to adult. Wonderful 4-H website
