Lemon Squeeze is an adapted Monster Squeeze game from the Everyday Math Program. My students love playing this game in class and now they can make their own game and show their parents how to play and practice their skills during the summer months. I created this game to use at our "Make & Take Summer Themed Math Night."
Serve some lemonade and have your students assemble the pieces to this game with take home directions so the parents will understand how to play the game. Students can create their own number lines by gluing it together or writing in their own numbers on the provided spaces. You can differentiate this activity by making number lines to best fit your student's needs. Numbers up to 100 are included. You may want to just use numbers 0-10 or 0-20 or perhaps 0-50 or 0-100. Students could also make their own number lines by counting by 2', 5's or 10's. Students can color and cut out the pitcher of lemonade and glue it to a popsicle stick or use the colored ones that are provided.
To begin playing, say: I’m thinking of a number
between 0 and 20.
Take turns guessing a number.
If the number is too large, say: “Your number is too large, and move the lemonade pitcher to cover that number.”
If the number is too small, say: “Your number is too small, and move the lemon to cover that number.
Continue with guesses until the correct number has been “squeezed” between the lemon and the pitcher
