My students love playing our Headbandz games during inside recess. These are review cards that we use to review math skills during our midterm and quarter assessment weeks.
How to play:
If you have never played this game- this is what it is all about:
1. All game players have a plastic headband (or you can make your own!)
2. They insert a card without looking at it into their headband and start a sand timer.
3. They are to ask questions to try to figure out what is inserted into their headband. The other players can only answer, "yes" or "no." Once they get an answer correct- they take it down and insert a new card- trying to get as many correct as they can before the time is up.
Where to get the headbands to hold the game cards:
*If you are looking to buy the original game (which I recommend since the plastic headbandz are high quality) you can find here: http://www.amazon.com/HedBanz-Game-Edition-may-vary/dp/B003AIM52A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422715545&sr=8-1&keywords=headbandz+game+for+kids
*If you want to make your own- you can laminate a sentence strip. Add Velcro strips on the ends to make it adjustable for students to wear around their head. Finally- you will need to cut a 3 sided rectangle flap in the front so that you can insert the math cards. I would recommend reinforcing this flap with packing tape since it will be used often.
Math Cards and Storage:
*Print out the cards on cardstock and laminate them.
*Cut around the cards.
*I recommend keeping the headbands and cards in a plastic tub with a lid.
