ALL ABOARD: WE’RE GATHERING STEAM
Here is a game that will help to teach your child about counting and making predictions. Before we start, which colour apple do you think will win the race?
- Apple Race printout
- Paper Clip
- Pom Poms or play dough (yellow, green and red). These will be your apples.
Once you have your apple race printout, put the fastener through the paper clip, and push the pin through the apple pie chart. This will be your spinner. Then let the race begin. Have your child predict which colour apple will win. Take turns spinning the paper clip and add the matching coloured apple to the board. Whichever colour reaches the end first wins!
This game is easy to create and helps your child learn math concepts like prediction, counting and addition… with some fun too!
