How to Play. First you ask the players: 'How old are you?' As the children take turns to answer, you put the corresponding digits on the calculator. When everyone answered, you ask:'How old are you altogether?' When the players said the correct number, write it on the board. Next ask, e.g.: 'How many sisters have you got?'. Then calculate brothers, aunts, uncles and so on. At the end of the game the players say all together:'Altogether we are one hundred and twenty-seven years old, we've got five sisters, four brothers, etc'.
Note. For higher levels, you can count the total weight and height.
