“It is winter in the arctic. An Eskimo comes across the frozen sea and makes holes in the ice to fish through. After a few hours of fishing he decides that he has caught enough fish and departs. Slowly the polar bears emerge. Wary of each other they circle the abandoned fishing holes to explore the potential for a meal.”
We roll 5 dice….. and you get to figure out how many bears and how many fish there are!
Here are some examples:
We have 2 bears and 23 fish.
We have 6 bears and 16 fish.
We have 12 bears and 17 fish.
Polar Bears occur in pairs,
By holes in the ice they gather round,
How many bears can there be?
How many fish under the sea?
