Students toss two dice (one regular and one A-F) in this fun game that introduces students to coordinate graphing in the spaces. Students form a coordinate pair based on the dice toss and capture a penguin, if possible. Students use the accompanying recording sheet to keep score during the game. A-F Dice: Create A-F dice using plain dice or purchase small wooden cubes at a craft store to make the dice. Free the Penguins Game: The penguins are stuck on the ice floes.
