LEGO Minecraft Number Line Game
The LEGO® Minecraft Number Line is a wonderful math manipulative for kids in school or homeschooling! This LEGO activity requires many bricks, but don’t worry if you don’t have some of them. Just make do with what you have! Learning will take place anyway! ?
- at least 1 LEGO Minecraft set
- LEGO tiles
- 4 small or 2 large LEGO plates
- number die
- Fine Point Permanent marker
How to Build:
Using the LEGO plates you have available, build a line of Minecraft blocks. Then using a fine point permanent marker, write the numbers 1 through 20 on the LEGO tiles. Use the numbered LEGO tiles (also used for this cool math manipulative!) to label the Minecraft blocks with numbers. Get two or more LEGO Minecraft minifigures and a die! Now the game is ready to be played!
How to Play:
To play the LEGO Minecraft Number Line Game, players take turns rolling the die and moving their LEGO Minecraft mini-figure along the number line. The first play to reach the end of the number line is the winner!
This number line game can be used for many levels of math learning. Students just learning to count and working on number recognition can just play by counting. Kids who are working on math operations such as addition and subtraction can practice by using two dice to either add or subtract.
