Are you struggling to find ways to work on the Standards of Mathematical Practice with your students? These important math practices really develop the skills our students need to become mathematicians! This game, Eliminate It, is a great way to work on SMP#3, which is to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
How can we do that standard in a game? Well, show your students these eliminate cards and ask them, which one should we eliminate? Your students will be thrilled to know there is NOT one right answer because it is what they think. This game gives students practice with creating their own argument and listen to others' ideas. The game starts with familiar pictures and then gets more complex with math concepts. Math concepts included are shapes, numbers, teen numbers, and addition and subtraction.
Do this game as a whole class or print the cards and create a new math center! Included are 10 cards.
