Educational Games Nimble Squirrel

( Educational, Guessing )

This is a device for mental arithmetic. It is one of which children are very fond. As the play element may enter very largely into the fanciful suggestions used by the teacher it seems in place in a book of games.

The teacher states her problem in a manner similar to the following —

“There was a tree with fifty branches. A squirrel started on the first branch jumped up three branches to the fourth came halfway down to the second went three times as high sixth branch fell halfway down third branch saw a dog and ran to the top of the tree fell to the ground and started over again went up eight branches jumped past three branches ” etc. finishing up with “How many branches from the top was he “
