Egg Puzzles: Division Facts
There are twelve division puzzles included. Each puzzle has three pieces. Print the puzzles four times on four different colored papers. That way, students can race each other to see who can put all of their puzzles together first! Or, let students work together collaboratively to put together all 12 puzzles!
Line Them Up: Distributive Property of Multiplication
Students split into two teams. Each team finds their start card. Students find the answer to the card and line it up under the previous card. The first team to line up all their cards in the correct order is the winner! Students are given the same cards but in a different order so the two teams can play fairly. This version of line them up has students practice finding the equations that match up with the distributive property of multiplication (example: 19x4=(10x4)+(9x4)).
Math Spoons: Capacity and Mass
Students play the game of Spoons, except with a math twist! Each child gets four cards and the rest of the cards go into a pile next to the first player. Three spoons (or whatever object you'd like) go in the middle. Student 1 picks up the first card and sees if it can help them get four of a kind. If not, they pass it to the next person. The first student to get four of a kind wins! More pictures and step by step directions in the preview!
Earth Day Game: Measure to the Nearest ¼ Inch
Students put out each of the recycling bins. All of the question cards are put in the middle. Items are split up between each player. Each time a student answers a question card, they get to recycle one of their items. First person to recycle all of their items wins! More pictures in the preview!
Grab It: Telling Time
Students lay out all circle clock cards in front of them. Students split up the rectangle cards between them. Each player flips over a rectangle card that has a time on it and looks at the circle cards for the matching answer. The first person to grab their matching answer wins the round and gets to keep the circle. The person with the most circles at the end of the game wins!
Hungry for Peeps: Equivalent Fractions
This game is full of mouths and peeps! :) Students spread out all of the mouths with fractions in front of them. Each peep has an equivalent fraction to one of the mouths on it. Place each peep on the equivalent fraction it matches with.
Easter Egg Collector: Comparing Fractions
Each child playing gets an Easter Egg basket. All of the eggs are placed in the middle. Each child tries to find the eggs that go in their basket before the other kids in their group! Students practice comparing fractions while also playing a fun game!
QR Codes: Identifying Fractions
Students identify the fraction on each card. When they figure out the answer (example: 1/2), they scan the QR code on the card and will be given a alphabet letter. Students find 1/2 on the Mystery Phrase sheet and fill in the corresponding letter. After all cards have been answered, the Mystery Phrase will reveal a secret phrase to students. There are three mystery phrases included in this pack!
Bunny Plots: Line Plots
In this game, students have to make a tally chart of all of the bunny heights. Once this is complete, the students have to create a line plot of their data using the graphing sheet. This is a great way for students to practice creating line plots and the measurement standards.
April Fools: Rectilinear Area
This is an April Fool's game that helps students practice area! Each time a student answers a question card on rectilinear area, students get to roll dice and move forward on the game board. They may also choose to take a chance card from the middle. The chance card can help or hurt their chances of winning and spices things up!
These centers are 66% OFF when you buy the bundle instead of purchasing them individually!
