    On Friday I subbed for a first grade class. They kept begging me to play the game "Travel". Due to the lesson plans, fire drill, etc. we did not have time to play a game though. I had never heard of this game anyway. Since the students seemed so enthusiastic about it, I would like to know how to play for future reference. Does anyone know how to play it?
    Thanks!

    The game Travel that I play is usually with math facts cards. I hold the stack and 2 kids go head to head. I flash the card and the one who gets it right "travels" to the next desk and competes against that child. The goal, of course, is to make it across the classroom. It can be a lot of fun, and noisy.

    We called that Around the World when I was in grade school.
