◈ Rules:
 Students are divided up into small groups and seated on the floor.
 Ball should be rolled (or gently tossed) to someone that hasn't had a turn. **Be sure to go over ground rules when things are rolled or tossed in class.**
 Student solves the problem closest to their right thumb (or whichever hand/finger you choose). The problem should be checked by neighbor on their right or left.
 Student with the ball should then roll the ball to another student in the group that hasn't had a turn yet.
 Play until desired time is up.

So easy to create! Easy to play!
