River Race


River Race is a game designed to teach students about chance through rolling a pair of dice. Students discover the probability of different dice combinations and adapt their game strategy to reflect it. 

Suitable for
  • Fast Finishers
  • Relief Teachers
  • Parents
Lesson Structure
  • Rotations / Group Work
  • Class Activity


This activity can be extended by having students record the dice rolls tat happened in their game, and graphing that information. A discussion as to why 7 is more likely than 12, or why no one ever rolled a 1 can follow and help students prepare for further games.
