There are over 100 slides/pages in this download. Make sure to download the FREE PREVIEW to have a closer look! This download is for grades 5-7.
There are 4 main files that are included in this package.
The first is a PowerPoint lesson and printable to help your students work through the divisibility rules for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 10. The lesson is chunked into 3 parts - the rules for 2, 5, 10; 3,6,9 and 4,8. There are also 3 printable activities that follow the lesson for extra practice. These are number sorting/creating activities based on the rules for divisibility. They could be used as activities, games, centers or as a whole class activity, using the projector. I've also included a list of all of the divisibility rules.
The second file is a "Divide and Conquer" game. There are 3 versions of the game, in an effort to include all of your learners. The easiest version requires students to be familiar only with the rules for 2, 5 and 10. The middle version adds the rules for 3 and 9 and the main version includes the rules for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10. Different colors of the game board are included to add a little extra for your students and I've also included the board in black and white, if ink is a concern. Rules and an example are included as well. The best thing about this game - low prep! All you need is a deck of cards for each group (2 - 4 students can play) and a game board for each student. Print and go! You may want to laminate, but in a pinch - you could just print a game board for each student, collect the game boards at the end of class and use them as an assessment.
The third file is a PowerPoint lesson, walking students through an activity explaining why you cannot divide by zero. Again low prep - all you need is counters (or blocks) for students.
The final file is a simple divisibility quiz.
I have tried to include everything you will need to teach divisibility, differentiating where I could, in this package. I've also tried to keep the prep time to a minimum and I think I've done a great job of that!
