6-Car Parking Lot

15 min2 participants

Perform multiple steps to relate and rank numbers 1 through 6. Park the right car in the right spot.

Let's play!

Players taking turns:

  1. Roll one die and read it. This number equals the number of passengers/studs to ride in your car. 

  2. Find your car with the right number of passengers.

  3. Roll the other die and read it. This number equals the parking space number.

  4. Park your car in the corresponding space.

  5. Game ends when the entire parking lot is full.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • All bricks

  • 2 dice

Place bricks on the base plate to create a 6-car parking lot (2 columns of 3 spaces, like a braille cell).

Facilitation tips

  • Preliminary exercise: introduce the concept of a parking lot being similar to a braille cell. Name aloud all the parking spaces.

  • Build cars with 2 bricks allows easier tactile detection.

Possible variations

  • Suggest players build the parking lot.

  • Team play: player 1 roll die 1 and find the car, player 2 rolls die 2 and find the space.
