Take a Stroll Through the Haunted Pumpkin Patch!
Need a fun way for your students to practice their knowledge of sums and addends found within fact families? How about a math center perfect for the month of October? Try the simple game on this file.
The multiplication and division fact families are presented in a triangular format. One side of a paper card has the family (minus either a factor or the product), and the respective answer (the missing factor or product) is on the back side. Students play by solving the missing factor or product that is face-up on a card, self-check the answer on the back, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move through the haunted pumpkin patch that is full of a myriad of unique jack o' lanterns.
This file contains the Haunted Pumpkin Patch game board (in brown if you prefer color, in white if you don't), a paper-clip spinner (minus the paper-clip), suggested procedures and management, and a set of 165 game cards that will help students to further their knowledge and comfort with multiplication and division-based fact families (facts are from 1-10).
Your students are certain to have a blast playing this game, all the while becoming more fluent with the factors and product found within a fact family!
