Game of Life - Math

We played The Game of Life for math.

There's nothing new about The Game of Life. It's was created in 1860 and has been sold publicly since the 1960's. I liked it as a kid and my kids like it now.

I am a huge fan of playing games to learn and practice math skills. What I like about The Game of Life is that the lowest denomination of money is $5,000. When the kids play they are constantly practicing adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing in the thousands which helps them to understand place value.

Now that summer is here we are on a school break we actually aren't doing any school. We're just playing games and following our interests which can be just as educational.
