Bean Bag Toss at a Target
This fun and interactive game incorporates movement, precision, and addition! Math doesn't also have to consist of using a paper and pencil! Create a target and add points to each section. When the bean bag lands on a target, use a scoreboard to add up the points! See how high of a number you can get and compare it to a peer, sibling, or family member!

[00:00:10.200]Hi, everyone, it's a beautiful day today.
[00:00:12.110]So today I'm gonna be showing you how to do a bean bag toss.
[00:00:16.110]Are you ready?
[00:00:18.180]What you'll need is some chalk, a bean bag,
[00:00:20.330]or something that you can throw,
[00:00:21.810]and a big open space for your target.
[00:00:25.400]For my target, I made four circles.
[00:00:28.410]I made a spot for my scoreboard.
[00:00:30.850]I also made a spot for my feet to stand behind.
[00:00:33.020]The object of this game is to throw your bean bag
[00:00:35.320]into the target, and count up how many points you have.
[00:00:38.390]Here I go, here's my first bean bag toss.
[00:00:42.645](gasps) It landed on the three.
[00:00:47.400]Because I landed on the three with my bean bag,
[00:00:50.150]I came over to my scoreboard and I drew three tallies.
[00:00:53.180]So I can add them all up later.
[00:00:55.390]All right, I'm standing behind my line.
[00:00:57.260]Let's see what I can get next.
[00:01:00.654](gasps) I got a four, yeah puppy dog, I got a four!
[00:01:05.910]Since I threw my bean bag and it landed on the four,
[00:01:08.420]I'm going to draw four more lines
[00:01:11.970]or tallies in my scoreboard.
[00:01:20.160]Here I go again, let's see what I can get!
[00:01:22.000]I'm hoping for the biggest number four.
[00:01:24.300]Hmm, let's see.
[00:01:25.733]I can get it. (gasps)
[00:01:27.740]Ooh, so this landed in my blue circle,
[00:01:30.160]which is the two tally marks.
[00:01:32.620]So I'm gonna grab my writing utensil again,
[00:01:36.320]walk over to my scoreboard and draw two lines.
[00:01:44.920]Now I'm gonna count up how many tallies I have.
[00:01:48.464](gasps) Let's see, one, two, three,
[00:01:51.570]four, five, six, seven, eight, nine.
[00:01:55.573]So that means I have nine tallies.
[00:02:01.290]My tallies mean that I scored nine points.
[00:02:04.330]I challenge you to maybe play with a friend
[00:02:07.060]or a sibling or a mom and dad,
[00:02:08.830]and see who can get the most points.
[00:02:11.390]Have fun and have a beautiful day.
[00:02:14.512](upbeat drum music)
