This game is a great way to get upper elementary students excited about math! In my classroom, we talk about how in order to solve math problems, students must be observant and clever...like a ninja! When doing this activity, I highly suggest letting your students become "Ninjas for a day" by wearing a tie around their head or waist, a sweatshirt pulled tight around their eyes, etc. The kids love it!
This 30-card game practices equations, input/output tables, patterns, and symbols, and it is very versatile. It can be played as a scoot game, hung around the room for a carousel, modeled in small group, done in partners, or done individually during a math center. It is also a fun way to have students practice algrebraic concepts without boring them to death! A recording sheet and answer key are included.
I hope your students enjoy this activity as much as mine do! Happy ninja-ing!
