This 4th grade math review activity gives students a lot of skill practice in a fun game context. My students beg to keep playing (and solving math problems) until a winner is declared.
The three-in-a-row game format is shorter than BINGO, doesn’t require much prep and is portable. I even made a video detailing how-to play three-in-a-row games in different settings:
Includes: Three sets of questions (30 problems per set), usually enough for two or three class periods of play.
Perfect for sub plans, beginning or end of the year review, and math centers. Many questions focus on fraction and decimal questions, making them perfect for the end of the year in 4th grade (or the beginning of 5th).
4th Grade Skills Covered
BASIC WHOLE NUMBER OPERATIONS
-Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.
-Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
-Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two.
-Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right.
FOCUS ON FRACTIONS AND DECIMALS
-Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole. (limited to fractions with denominators 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 100)
-Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators
-Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.
-Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100.
-Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size.
-Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators.
