This is a fun game for students to play to review order of operations. There are 8 pumpkins on the main screen. Each pumpkin links to an order of operations problem students must solve. Each problem slide has an expression students will simplify using order of operations, as well as a pumpkin in the top right hand corner. When a user touches/throws a koosh ball at the pumpkin it will move over to reveal the answer to the problem. (This makes it easy to check students answers!). To get back to the main screen click the back bat. I have also included a sheet that has each problem and its answer for the teacher to print out and look at.

Note: The 1st slide is just a title slide. Click once on that screen to get to the game!

To play this game I suggest dividing students into 3-5 small groups. Then, give each group a white board (or other device) to record answers on. Allow someone from each group to go to the front of the room, to click on a pumpkin. Give each group time to simplify the expression. Another way to use this would be for a quick review. Show students a problem and have them work out the answers. Then allow them to check their answers. They can show their work on the recording sheet.

A Google slides version is included which students can complete alone too! It is self-checking. Unfortunately due to how Slides works, the pumpkins chosen do not disappear off of the main screen once they have been picked.
