Call it “Kabuto-Mushi Race” or “Beetle Race” its up to you. I think “Kabuto-Mushi Race ” sounds funnier. Here’s how to play. Set up: Prepare 2-3 Kabuto-mushi cards, laminate and attach magnets. Draw on the blackboard 5-6 rows by 4 columns of random numbers 1-6. You will also need a foam die and some music. How to play: Two or three teams are formed. Students pass the foam die around while music is playing. When music stops, the student holding the die must answer a question, identify a flashcard etc. Then the student rolls the die. If they roll a number on the next level, they can move up. A Kabuto -mushi can not move up if another Kabuto-mushi is on that space. Play continues until one team makes it to the top.
