Have a little fun learning or reviewing elapsed time.
This is a partner game where students will pull a card from a baggie displaying a start time and ending time. They will solve the elapsed time. The elapsed times are all shorter than an hour and are in multiplies of 5, such as 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, etc. A few of the times do carry over to the next hour. Once the answer is checked on the answer sheet, if the answer was correct, the player will mark the time on the game board. The winner is the first student to get 4 in a row.
Includes: cover sheet for front of file folder, game board, 25 game cards, directions, and answer key.
This game works perfectly as a cooperative math game, center activity, and great for guided math if you need to work with a small group. Take it out for review before tests, or basically just use any time throughout the year.
