1) Either print this blank game board, or copy it onto a sheet of blank paper. 2) Use the attached list of -dge words to fill in the blanks on the Race to the Top game board. 3) You will need 1 or 2 dice. If you do not have dice, go to google and type in “dice roller”, and you can roll virtual dice online. You will also need place markers. 4) Fill all of the blank spaces on the board with -dge words. 5) Play alone, in partners, or groups. 6) Roll the dice, find the first word in the column that matches the face on the dice. Read that word, and then cover it with a place marker, then roll the dice again! 7) The first person to get one row with place markers all the way to the top is the winner!
