Classify numbers by category: odd or even. Understand and follow rules, to deconstruct a wall built of number bricks.
Both players, taking turn
Find an odd number brick on top of the wall.
Remove it and place it in the bowl.
Continue play until no odd number bricks can be removed.
How to prepare
1 base plate
20 number bricks
1 number sign brick
Build a wall with all the number bricks.
Number sign is located on the top left corner of the base plate to indicate the bricks represent numbers.
Ask children to help you find new selection ideas to play the game (only bricks with 2 studs, only even numbers, multiple of 2, multiple of 3…).
Encourage children to make constructions with their selected bricks: e.g. house/car of even numbers.
Increase/decrease the numbers of players.
Add other bricks to the wall, for example letters or symbols.
Let the children build the wall before starting.
Children will develop these holistic skills
- Calculate with numbers: Recognize odd and even numbers
- Understand, respect and enforce rules and regulations
- Identify various leisure activities to be done alone or with other people
- Follow courteous behavior: Interrupt a speaker in a socially acceptable manner when necessary
