Make learning and reviewing division fun! Your students will enjoy this divisibility rules game. "If only kids could learn the divisibility rules"... do you ever say that? It would be so much easier for them to tell if a number is prime or composite. It would be so much easier for them to find the factors of numbers. Hopefully this game will help your students practice and learn some divisibility rules, as I hope it helps mine too. :-)

I designed this game for my 4th graders, but it could also be used to reinforce divisibility rules for fifth graders.
This partner game includes a fun and colorful game board with 28 number listed in 7 rows of 4. The numbers range from the hundred's place to the ten-thousand's place. There are 28 game card questions, an answer sheet, a sheet explaining the divisibility rules (you can choose to let the kids use this or not), and directions. In addition, you can use the cover photo on the front of the game if you choose to use this as a file folder game, which is what I do.
The divisibility rules included are for the numbers 2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10. I did not include 7 because I thought it was too difficult for my kids. I tell my kids they may need to just divide that out.
In this game, students draw a card with a divisibility question related to the number on the card. They must tell if the number on the cards is divisible by that number, and tell the rule that applies. The other player uses the answer key to check the answer. If the student gets it right, they may cover up the number on the board with one of their chips. The object is to get 4 chips in a row. More specific directions are included.
If you do math workshop, this is a great game to use. It works perfectly for math centers or just a cooperative activity during a unit on division.
I know your students will have fun practicing divisibility rules with this fun game.
