Compete in March Madness by playing rounds of addition basketball and scoring points for your team!
Pair students together and give each a basketball addition mat, 2 sets of basketballs and a set of sum scorecards. To play, students flip over 2 basketballs (to represent each addend) and ‘shoot’ them into each net on their addition mat. Add up the numbers and find the answer scorecard. After the addition sentence is solved, record the sentence on the worksheet. Students play 6 rounds of basketball to complete the tournament and finish the championship round! To make the game more competitive, time students to see who finishes all 6 rounds the fastest!
An additional worksheet is provided for students to ‘keep score’ and represent their addition sentences with tally marks.
