This 5th 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.
Three sets of questions (30 problems per set), usually enough for two or three class periods of play.
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:
Perfect for sub plans, beginning or end of the year review, and math centers.
