|A "Just for Fun" math game from
the students of Gate/Plus at White Elementary School and their teacher
Kevan Chuc in Tucson, Arizona, USA <email@example.com>
How to Play SKUNK,
a mental math game.
(This game will sharpen your math
The object of the game is to get
as many points as possible without being skunked and you will win the game.
1. Get one or two die.
2. Get a piece of paper and
divide it into 5 sections putting one letter in each column. S/K/U/N/K.
You can play a column at a time.
3. All students stand. Teacher
will call the operation. (Ex. Multiply by 3 and take away 5)
4. Roll die and play. (You
pass the die from one student to the next or you can use several die. Teacher
calls the operation and each student rolls and gets different numbers and
then does the operation with those numbers.)
5. Calculate quickly to get the answer
within 10 seconds. Write your answer in the column. Each column contains
your personal points.
6. In each round the student will
have to decide if they want to remain in the game or sit down with the
points he or she has. If you roll a one you are "skunked" and lose
all your points and are out of the game.
7. If you roll doubles or "snake
eyes" (two ones) you can double your points.
8. Each person can take a turn
creating an operation.
9. A person wins the game with
the most points and who is still standing. (You win if you are the last
person standing without being skunked and have the most points, however
a person could have the most points if they sat down so as to not risk
being skunked. You can play five separate games, one for each letter
or wait until the end of the word skunk to add up your points.)
This is a really fun game and fast
