Calla is based on one of the many counting games which are derived from African and Asian cultures.
Number sense, deductive thinking, directionality, and one-to-one correspondence are developed in this challenging game which is varied from the many ancient African and Asian counting games. In this strategy game students distribute centimeter cubes around the gameboard to plan for free turns and captures that result in acquiring the greatest number of cubes in their “Calla” (the goal). UNDERLYING MATHEMATICS/SCIENCE: computational reasoning involving number sense, sequential thinking, addition, counting, one-to-one correspondence, equality, inequality; logical/scientific reasoning involving observation skills, hypothesizing and experimentation, deductive and inductive reasoning; spatial/geometric reasoning involving directionality; and active problem solving
