Math Game Bundle containing 10 games to enhance your students learning of math. Great for upper elementary and middle school students.
Maths games are a great way to engage all students and allow your students to practice their math in a fun way. Some of the games in this unit are best played in pairs while others can be played as a whole class. Dice and counters may be required for some games.
Four in a Row: A popular two player game which allows students to practice their basic multiplication facts. Students have to connect 4 numbers in a row – a bit like connect four.
Bowl a Fact: Another two player multiplication game where students have to knock down the numbers (pins) in order to win.
Dominos: Two versions of this game are provided. For this game you will have to cut out the dominos (I would suggest laminating the page first) before the students can play. In the first version students use the dominos to convert between basic percentages, fractions, and decimals. The second version is a basic facts version.
Multiplication Bingo: Always a popular warmup activity to start off your maths lesson. Students choose numbers between 1-50 and mark them off as you call out basic fact questions from the four provided tables.
Time Machines: This game is a bit like snakes and ladders but instead uses time machines and black-holes to race through time. When students land on one of these squares they have to answer a basic fact question to find out how far they move.
Beat the Teacher: A whole class game exploring probability and place value up to hundreds of thousands.
Greedy Pig: A fun whole class game exploring luck, probability, and mental adding. can also be played in pairs.
Land Grab: A printable 2-3 player area based game.
Probability Game: This dice game can either be played in pairs or as a whole class. It lets the students see probability in action.
Race to the Moon: This is a printable board game which can be played with 2-5 students. Students roll a die to move around the board answering math questions as they go. A blank template is also provided if you want to create your own questions – or perhaps you could get your students to make their own game.
