Matariki - Mu Torere (A Traditional Maori Board Game)

Matariki - Mu Torere (A Traditional Maori Board Game)

Mu torere is said to be the only native board game of the Maori. It is played on the points and centre of an 8-pointed star, by two players with four pieces each. The object of the game is to block your opponent so they cannot move. Mu Torere is the perfect game to celebrate Matariki, or Waitangi Day, especially if it is raining. I also put the boards in my math game area for my math rotations and early finishers. I have included 2 different game boards. First ,the traditional star board and the other being more of a wheel design (My students seem to prefer this one) Further I have included some counters for it (Or just use your plastic ones). Oh yes I have included instructions on how to play. Simply print, cut and laminate for a long lasting resource. I laminate the game board on one side and the instructions on the other.

Animal Jeopardy

Animal Jeopardy

Animal Jeopardy is a great way for your class to review your concepts and ideas about animals. The categories covered in this game are mammals, reptiles, amphibians,birds, fish, adaptations, food chains, and animal vocabulary. I typically put the class into small groups or individuals and ask a member of the group to choose a color and dollar amount. That is the question that they have to answer. When I get the class to do it individually I get them to put the answers down on a piece of paper and mark them at the end of the game. NEW! I have now introduced a visual point scoring system to keep track of how much money the teams have earned. Simply click on the allocated game board and with each click the amount increases by $100 I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device.
