Pot of Gold Game

Here is a game for St. Patrick's Day that has students adding and subtracting rhythms.  Players try to be the first one to fill up their pot of gold!

Here are the directions:

Each player chooses a rhythm card that has an addition/subtraction problem on it.  You can make some or use my Rhythm Addition Cards.   Students calculate that answer and take that number of gold pieces to put on in their pot.  You can use pennies or bingo chips for your gold.  My students love my Magic Notes, so I will most likely be using them.

You could also roll rhythm dice, if you have any of them.  Another idea I had was to make time signature cards and have a missing rhythm.  The note value of the missing rhythm would be how many gold pieces the student gets to add to the pot.
