Product Description
YES, Math and Physical Education! This activity can be used to start a PE class while simultaneously reinforcing concepts from math class. It could also be used within a math class to get your students moving. The duration can be adjusted with the complexity and number of problems.

The object of the game is for teams to complete equations including a target number by using numbers and operations on pieces of paper placed around the play space. The only requirement aside from the information and files included here is a place to play. A gymnasium is ideal, but any large open space would be fine, outdoors included.

I have included a short video of my students playing. The only set up for this activity is to print the file and cut the papers into quarters. Everything is here, and after you have become familiar with the game, there is also a separate file to facilitate making your own target numbers. This game can easily be adjusted to almost any grade level. The materials included here are for the four basic operations, but the level of calculation is increased by the removal of select numbers and operations depending on the target number.

I have listed the duration of this game as 30 minutes because that is the shortest time available. While you could certainly take 30 minutes, you could also take as few as 10 minutes with just one target number.

If you are looking for a math activity that will get kids excited to move, this is it. If you are looking for a physical education activity that incorporates academic knowledge and skills, this is a great one.
