Find some small round tokens, about the size of a large coin. On each token draw or print a combination of notes…i.e. 3 quarter notes, a whole note, a dotted half plus a whole…any combination up to a value of 10. Create approximately 50 tokens, with values from 1 count to 10 counts.
To play the game, divide the tokens between the students (or teams in a larger class). Then they take turns rolling a pair of dice. Whatever the dice count is, they must match that to the counts on the tokens. They can use as many or as few tokens on each turn. The game is over when they have to pass 3 times without matching counts, or when they have all their tokens gone.
