Number Wall

10 min3 participants

Let's play!

Both players, taking turn

  1. Find an odd number brick on top of the wall.

  2. Remove it and place it in the bowl.

  3. Continue play until no odd number bricks can be removed.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • 20 number bricks 

  • 1 number sign brick

  • 1 bowl

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.

Facilitation tips

  • 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.

Possible variations

  • 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.

Did you know?

  • Children learn more when they are actively engaged as opposed to passive, when activities are meaningful to them and when they learn together with others.
