Do you remember one of your favorite childhood games, Candy Land?! Well, now your kids can play it while reviewing their Geometry Unit and Measuring Angles!!
This activity is aligned with 4th grade common core standards, but can also be used for 3rd grade and 5th grade.
These are the standards that it covers:
Brief Overview of Game: Every time a student goes, they must answer a question correctly from the cards in order to pick a colored square card to move their piece. The game is then played very similarly to Candy Land. My kids loved this activity, they were so excited for math, it was great to see, and I hope your students will feel the same!
What is included?
1.) Geometry Candy Land Directions
2.) Geometry Question Cards
This includes 60 different questions aligned with the common core about geometry. Your students will be practicing the following while playing this game:
*Points, Lines, Line Segments, and Rays
*Recognizing Right, Obtuse, or Acute Angles
*Recognizing and naming Parallel and Perpendicular Lines
*Recognizing and naming different angles within shapes
*Identifying Right/Obtuse/Acute Triangles
*Identifying Scalene/Isosceles/Right Triangles
*Understanding Polygons - Triangles and Quadrilaterals
*Recognizing different types of quadrilaterals: Trapezoid, Parallelogram, Rhombus, Rectangle, Square
3.) Candy Land Original Board
I tried this out with my students first and they absolutely loved it! The best part is they were reviewing everything they need to know about geometry while they were playing!
4.) Candy Land Square Cards - These are the cards that are used to move the pieces. There is a total of 66 cards. 10 cards for each of the 6 colors (8 single squares and 2 double squares for each color). Then there is 6 "special" cards.
Hope your students enjoy!
