Estimate. Estimation. Estimation Game.
5 to Make 205 will be a hit in your classroom. Keep your students hopping as you build number sense. Students become proficient estimators quickly playing 5 to make 205. All you need is two dice and you are off. I have been playing this game with my students for 20 years and it is their favorite. My mom, who taught for 25 years before she retired, taught it to me so it is a great old fashioned tried and true math game. Play it with your students and have fun. I always play it in math class right before a holiday so buy some jelly beans, grab your dice and liven up your middle school classroom.
