This game is versatile and can be used with any concept or subject. It’s perfect for an oral review, centers, and task cards. The game can be played as an individual or small group competition. For your printing convenience, this file includes both color and black and white images.
Option 1 Directions
Either in groups or individually, ask student questions orally, use task cards, etc. If the student/group answers the question correctly, he/she will place a penny on the piggy bank mat. The student or group with the most money at the end of the game wins.
You can use this game as a way to help students practice the concept of money while playing as well. Here is how…once students have received a total of five pennies on their mat, they can exchange the five pennies for a nickel. Once students have five more pennies, they can exchange the nickel and the pennies for a dime. They can continue to do this throughout the game eventually covering the mat with quarters.
Option 2 Directions
With this option, students will still play in groups or individually. This version will require leveled questions for the students to answer. Again you may ask questions orally, use task cards, etc. If the student/group answers the question correctly, money will be earned based on the difficulty of the question (much like Jeopardy). Easy questions should be worth a penny, while more difficult questions should be worth a nickel, dime, or quarter. The student/group with the most money at then end of the game wins.
I hope that your students love playing this game as much as my students do.
