One step equations made fun! Are your students tired of doing boring old worksheets? Are you tired of hearing them complain about doing boring old worksheets?! Space Race to the rescue! Here is a fun way to practice one step equations in a space themed board game format! A competition scenario always gets my students excited and engaged in the learning and practice.
This product includes a game board where students race to be the first player to reach the planet. On their turn, students draw a card from the pile, solve the problem, and , if correct, roll a die and move that many spaces. If a student solves the problem incorrectly they do not get to roll the die. Play continues until the first student reaches the planet! As a fun twist I have also included “mechanical issues”, “warp speed”, and “propellant misfire” cards that have students lose a turn, move forward a few spaces, and one that has them start over!
*You must provide dice and game pieces for the students.
The 42 1-step equation questions include mostly whole numbers, but there are several negatives, fractions, and decimals as well. There are 2 sets of cards: one where the students solve and provide the answer on their own and a second set (same problems as first set) that are multiple choice if you have students that need a little bit easier format.
This product looks awesome in color, but it also prints just fine in black and white as I know most schools don’t have a color printer available.
Space Race is sure to fire up the engagement in your room! I hope you and your students find usefulness and enjoyment from this product for many years to come!
