youcubed: How Close to 100?
This has become one of our most popular tasks and we are hearing about all sorts of creative adaptations.

• This game is played in partners. Two children share a blank 100 grid.
• The first partner rolls two number dice.
• The numbers that come up are the numbers the child uses to make an array on the 100 grid.
• They can put the array anywhere on the grid, but the goal is to fill up the grid to get it as full as possible.
• After the player draws the array on the grid, she writes in the number sentence that describes the grid.
• The second player then rolls the dice, draws the number grid and records their number sentence.
• The game ends when both players have rolled the dice and cannot put any more arrays on the grid.
• How close to 100 can you get?

### Variation

Each child can have their own number grid. Play moves forward to see who can get closest to 100.
