Free Parent Involvement Activity – "Checker Switcheroo" – Ages 7+

What switcheroo does a Furcifer Pardalis perform?

Place two red and two black checkers in a line on a five-square strip, leaving a space between the pairs.

### ### BLANK 0000 0000

### ### BLANK 0000 0000

The object of this game is to swap the position of the checkers to:

0000 0000 BLANK ### ###

0000 0000 BLANK ### ###

The rules of the game are as follows:

* A checker can either move one space sideways, or jump over a single checker to an empty space.

* Red checkers can only move to the right and black checkers can only move to the left.

Once she has mastered the above exercise, she can try swapping these positions!
