The AMAZING RACE is a fun way to review before a test or if you need an activity before a break...the kids LOVE it!
Just like the TV show, the AMAZING RACE is a packet full of tasks to complete. I put the kids in partnerships and give each student a packet. They start with Task 1 and have to go in order. They complete the first task, one partner brings it up to be check by me. If they get everything in the task correct, I initial it and they can move on to the next task. If it's incorrect, they have to go back and redo it and try again until it's correct.
The reason why the kids love it is because all tasks are not math related - it gives them brain break tasks along the way that are just funny and/or out of the ordinary.
Whichever partnership finishes all the tasks first wins! Or you can set an amount of time and they try to finish the race within that time frame - such a blast!
