Use this creative review game at the end of your math unit. Covering the concepts of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions, this review game challenges students with basic number problems and word problems.
This is based on the unit from Everyday Math (4th Edition) Unit 5: Operations with Fractions. There are questions that mirror the tasks on the assessment provided by the publisher.
Materials: You need this PowerPoint, and a small selection of approximately 6 prizes (some ideas include classroom coupons, extra Dojo points, cans of soda, candy bars, etc.).
How to Play:
Have all students use a whiteboard and marker or a paper to record their answers.
Display one problem at a time. All students solve the problem individually.
Randomly choose a student (using sticks or a random selection program such as the one on Class Dojo).
If the student answers incorrectly, another student is called upon. When a student answers the question correctly, s/he may choose any prize from the stash. Students must keep the prize on the corner of their desks.
Once all prizes have been claimed, the next student who answers correctly may steal a prize from someone else.
When the game is over (out of time or out of questions), the players holding the prizes may keep them. It’s unfair but very fun!
