Cardinal Directions Board Game

This is a game I designed to practice the cardinal directions with a student who has been practicing these concepts for a few weeks now.

The game is designed for two players and each player gets to pick a color, either blue or orange. Each player takes a turn picking a card out of a bag and travels that many spaces on the board. If the player lands on a diamond that is their color they earn one point. If the player lands on the opposite color they do not earn a point. There are green diamonds on the board as well that are worth two points for each player.

The goal is to play the game until all the cards are gone and whoever has the most points wins!


I used a foam board for the game with sharpie markers and cut foam sheets into little squares for the cards. This student has not learned the midpoints yet but they can definitely be incorporated into the game with new cards.
