Fidget Spinner Math!
Use this activity to help students practice telling time to the hour, half hour, quarter past and quarter till.
Find a partner to play fidget spinner war.
Split up the task cards evenly with your partner. Take one pile of cards on your side.
Spin the spinner.
While the spinner is spinning, go through the task cards and write down the answers on the answer page.
When the spinner stops, count how many task cards you answered.
The one with more questions answered is the winner!
Double check answers by checking each other’s answers.
No spinner available? You can race against time! Use a timer app on an electronic device or a simple hourglass timer and race each other to see who can answer more questions.
Helpful Tips for TEACHERS:
You can laminate the spinner mats and have students use dry erase markers to write down the answers.
Laminate the task cards for longer use!
You can put these in clear sleeves and use them over and over again!
Students may go through one pile of task cards too fast. So print 2 pages of same task cards and shuffle them so that students can have enough task cards to play.
You can use the page with spinner in the middle or have students put their spinner on the spinner mat and answer on the page without the spinner picture.
If using the spinner mat, more than 2 students can race each other!
***Another way for students to play is to have students race each other to match the clock to the written time (matching game) before the spinner stops.
