I'm always trying to come up with fun and different games that students can play to practice a math concept we've learned in the classroom. This game is based on the popular card game called PIG (or some people play a similar game called Spoons). Anyhow, students play this game in groups of 3-8 (6-8 players in a group is best). In the regular PIG card game, players try to find a match of 4 of the same cards. In this variation, players try to find a match of 4 cards - an addition, subtraction, multiplication and division integer problem - that has the same answer. This game provides lots of laughs as well as an opportunity to practice the skills of working with integers. Please download the preview for more information on this game. Everything is included - it just needs to be printed and cut out!
