Three Strikes You’re Out – 8/4/20

Today we’ll be bringing baseball and math together for this fun game: Three Strikes, You’re Out!

This activity is best for those learning basic addition and subtraction.

To do this activity, you will need:

  • Printable Sheets (from MathWire.com)
  • 2 Dice
  • Laminating paper or a sheet protector
  • Dry erase markers
  • Dry erase eraser

Directions:

  1. Print out the game board and either laminate it or put it into a plastic page protector.
  2. Place 9 markers on your Three Strikes game board and circle the remaining two numbers with your dry erase marker. The numbers circled are now your strike numbers
  3. The first player rolls the dice, adds the numbers, and removes a player from that number. If the number is one of their strike numbers they must put an “X” in the strike box.
  4. The second player rolls the dice, adds the numbers, and removes a player from that number. If the number is one of their strike numbers they must put an “X” in the strike box.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4. If a player rolls a number from which they have already removed a player they do nothing for that round. The game is over when one person removes all their players or one person gets three strikes.
