Math Game of the Day



  • Paper
  • 1 six sided dice

How to play:

  • First draw a mountain gameboard for each player as shown below (funny face optional!!).
  • The object of the game is to be the first to climb your mountain, in number order, and then descend the other side.
  • Player One rolls the dice and hopes for a 1 in order to cross the number 1 off the mountain.  Players must ascend in order, so they cannot cross off the 2 until they have crossed off 1.
  • Play continues until someone has made it all the way up their mountain and down the other side in the correct order.


  • For a harder version, make the mountain higher (e.g. 10+) and introduce 2 or 3 dice.  Players can add the numbers on the dice.
