## What's the Chance?

Probability is how likely something is to happen.

Here are a few of the words that we use when talking about the chance of something happening:

Certain: Something is definitely going to happen. e.g. It's certain the sun will set tonight.

Likely: Something is more likely to happen than to not happen. e.g. It’s likely the fastest runner will win the race.

Unlikely: Something is more likely not to happen than to happen e.g. It’s unlikely it will snow in June.

Impossible: There's no chance of something happening e.g. It’s impossible that a cow will jump over the moon.

## A Game of Chance – Rock Paper Scissor…with a twist

A lot of you will know how to play rock paper scissors already, so how about we add another fun part to it.

• Find a player to play with.

• Come up with a list of fun forfeits (nothing mean or dangerous!). Write the forfeits down, cut them out and put them in a bag or box.

• The player who is the first to win three games wins the round.  The person who doesn't in must choose a forfeit from the bag.

• Here are some ideas for forfeits:

- Do the floss dance for 1 minute while whistling "Twinkle, twinkle little star"

- Do an impression of one of your family.

- Sing I'm a little teapot

- Smell the other player’s sock

- Make snacks for the winner.

- Gargle a song with water.

- Go outside and sing the chorus of "Let it go", as loud as possible.

- Winner gets to face paint the other person.

- Act like a one-legged chicken laying an egg for 1 minute.

- Winner gets to put an ice cube down the back of the other person’s top and they must keep it there for 30 seconds.
