It’s A Zoo is a board game I made to accompany the play based preschool math curriculum I wrote this year. It is a simple game that teaches counting skills, yet a favorite by the students.
- file folder
- math counters
- game markers
- small animal stickers
- dot stickers
The object of the game is to move your game marker from start to finish, collecting as many math counters along the way as possible. Students roll the dice and move their game marker the same number of space. If the player lands on an animal, he or she collects a math counter of their choice. If the player lands on a dot sticker, nothing is collected. The player with the most math counters at the finish wins the game.
While teaching the basics of how a game board is played, It’s A Zoo! is also designed to teach children basic counting and measurement skills.
