The Path of Planks – Jurassic Jump Multisensory Math Games
Objective: The objective of this trial and error task is to have each team member move from the starting plank to the final ending plank on the end of the Jurassic Mat according to a predetermined map.
Predetermined maps that show the planks that the students can step on (forward, sideways, and diagonally).
The first team member will begin at START and step on one plank at a time while team members watch carefully so that they can remember the correct path.
Each time the student moves to a correct plank they proceed and choose another plank. If the plank is incorrect, the leader will send the student to the end of the team line. The next team member begins at START, remembering their teammate’s path, and selects new planks. They continue until they choose an incorrect plank and the next student begins.
Remembering and following is a key part of solving the Path of Planks. In fact, kids will finish the game quicker each time and consequently improve their memory without even realizing it!
Extension: In addition, you could require students to balance an egg for an extra challenge.
Psst…our other most popular, and a very educational fun game is definitely Cosmic Climb. Space, dinosaurs or both?
