This Rock, Paper, Scissors game is an engaging supplement for a lesson on teaching students how to use the distributive property in variable expressions.
Making a competitive game out of doing math problems will liven up any lesson for your students. With this game, each player chooses a side. After playing a round of Rock, Paper, Scissors, the player who wins gets to solve a problem on their side of the page. The player who fills up their side first with answers takes the page to be checked for accuracy. If all the answers are correct, they win! If they are not correct, they must erase incorrect answers and continue playing to win the chance to try again. Students can trade sides after a game for a total of 18 math problems.
