Whack A Mole
A counting game, forwards or backwards.Learning objective:
Counting forward/backwards in steps of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 or 12.
Year 4: To count backwards through zero to include negative numbers
Use the sliders on the LHS to set steps you want to count in then the start number. Move the steps first before the start number so that the start number is a multiple of your step.
The switch on the RHS lets you swap between counting forwards or backwards.
There is no end to this game. When you get as far as you need, simply drag the slider back to start again.
For children in Year 4 and older, why not try exploring negative numbers. Set the game to backwards from 0.
