This is an awesomely entertaining review game for 8th grade math students. Your students will love playing this game!
60 question cards that review math skills that are aligned to 8th grade common core standards.
Kaboom is one of the most engaging activities I have ever had my students do for review. Simply print 5-8 copies of the cards. Cut the cards apart, and put each set in a separate bucket or container. You can prepare this game in less than 10 minutes.
Students will take turns pulling cards and attempting to answer the questions. One student will be assigned as the answer checker (this can rotate). If the students get the answer right they keep the card; if they get it wrong, they put the card back in the bucket. If a player pulls a smiley face kaboom card, they can steal all another players cards if they can answer all of them correctly.
This review game is highly effective because the cards are recycled over and over again, and students must pay close attention to answer the cards correctly on their turn, or on a steal. Every time I have played this game with my class, they have gotten super competitive and excited about winning!
