Maths Tell your child you are going to play a game: the winner is the one who throws the most balls into the buckets. Each player should throw the same number of balls or beanbags into the buckets (4 or 5 is ideal): record the score by counting how many landed in the buckets and make a tally chart of the results. You could play a new round each time, and create lots of tally charts or you could continue to build up one chart, depending on the number of balls you have available. Talk about who has more or less balls in the buckets. Who has the highest score? Who has the lowest score?
