Who will free their animals first? Students toss two dice, calculate the difference and free an animal from that number cage. Younger students will enjoy this animal version of the Release the Prisoners game and learn subtraction facts as well. Both the 6-sided dice game mat and the 12-sided dice game mat are included with directions.
- Download the Free the Animals game directions and game mats for 6-sided dice to practice easier subtraction facts or 12-sided dice to practice harder subtraction facts.
- Download the Free the Animals game recording sheet designed so that students can track how many animals each player places in his/her cages and who wins. Hopefully, students will learn something about probability while mastering subtraction facts.
