Spider Ring Roll
We played a fun game that capitalized on the children's love of spiders and encouraged subitizing and comparing quantities. Spider ring roll was a fun and easy way to infuse some math into a small group experience. You can see from the pictures that many children were interested in trying the activity out!
To play this game each player rolls a die (or multiple dice if you would like to encourage subitizing and adding). That player identifies the number rolled and puts that many spider rings on his or her fingers. For example if a four is rolled then you get to wear four sparkly spider rings.
Once every player is wearing their rings the hands are compared. First the rings are counted and a number is identified and then the children see who is wearing the most rings. Player with the most spiders on his or her hands wins the round!
