PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need a little game to help reinforce finding factors, or maybe you need an interactive activity to top off a lesson on finding factors. This basic dice game is the perfect thing.

NOTE: I used this game with my 4th graders, but if you have some third graders that are ready for a challenge or some 5th graders that need remediation or review, this game might work for them too. Read all of the details of the game and decide.

If you do math workshop or have math centers/stations in your classroom, this will be a perfect addition to your other activities.

In this game, students are practicing finding the greatest common factor of numbers to 36.

The game boards have a cute robot theme. There is also a factor list included so students can check their factors. The only other items needed are 2 dice per partner set, and each will need a pencil.

Specific directions are given with the game, but basically students will roll the dice to find the product, and then they will find the factors of that product. They will do this twice in order to find a greatest common factor. Their partner will be doing the same thing on their own game board. They will check each other's factors using the factor list sheet, and then the person with the greatest common factor wins the game.

My 4th grade students had a lot of fun with it, so I'm sure yours will too.

loved the idea of this game, but students were a bit confused. Once we got the hang of going back and forth...they enjoyed it!
On  September 20, 2013Elementary Lesson Plans answered:
wow... sorry about that. Lots of people have really loved the game. I read through the comments and I don't think anyone else has ever said it was confusing. Glad yours ended up loving it and I am sorry that you found any of it hard to understand. I had GREAT success with it in my room. I hope you end up having the same :-) ~Molly
