This is a great activity to get students out of their seats and moving in math class! Students can work with a partner, small group, or individually to solve the ten problems involving rational numbers using addition and subtraction, and write the “clue” word for that station on their paper. This activity focuses on fractions and decimals (both positive and negative) and can be done either with or without a calculator. Students can work in whatever order they want, so it is easy to spread them out across the room. Each card is numbered in the upper left star.
Two versions of the activity are included to help make printing easier for you. The first has a color background along with the color stars and boxes. The second has a plain white background with the color stars and boxes. If “no color” ink is needed, just print the second set in grayscale or pure black & white. I prefer to print each card in landscape mode. Both full and half sheet student answer sheets are also included to give you more options.
Printing each question on cardstock and laminating each will keep copy costs down and preserve the activity for years to come. I hope you and your students enjoy this activity as much as mine do!
