“Math Boggle” is a spin off the popular “Boggle” game, where players try to see how many words they can make from a random set of letters. With this game, however, players try to answer number sentences using a random set of numbers (somewhat random). Pieces are created in black and white to make copying easy; print on colored paper to add a pop of color if you wish. There are 48 number circles total – by mixing and rearranging, the possibilities are endless! And with the different directions for the game, it's easy to differentiate for your different learners!
How to set up:
1. Choose an area of your room that has enough wall space. You can use the section of wall under your board, your classroom door, or even a window shade that is usually pulled down.
2. Make an array/grid with the numbers included in this packet (you decide how many to include, based on your students).
3. Display the operation sign that you wish for students to use somewhere around the board.
How to play:
Variation 1: Students choose 2 numbers that are connected (vertically, horizontally, diagonally). Follow the operation sign to find an answer.
Variation 2: Students choose a number and roll a dice. Follow the operation sign to find an answer (works great for 2 digit x 1 digit).
Variation 3: Students choose 2 numbers that are connected. Roll a dice that has operation signs to find an answer.
Variation 4: Students choose 3 numbers that are connected. Follow the operation sign for the first two and then the third (3 number sequence).
Variation 5: Use the game variation direction cards to differentiate. Give students the direction card that best meets their needs.
Awesome game! Your students will love playing this game, and they will get some great math practice, too! Please remember that your purchase entitles you only to have the right to copy for your classroom only. If a colleague loves the game, please refer him/her to my TPT store, or purchase an additional license to share.
