Here are adorable winter penguins holding numbers that kids can match to factor cards. They can be used in a myriad of ways:
1.Factor Match: Place a set of cards at a math center. Students can match pairs independently, in partners, or in a small group.
2.Partner Up: Pass the penguin number cards out to half the class and the factor cards to the other half of the class. Have the kids partner up when they find the person who’s holding the matching card.
3.Write the Room: Tape the factor cards around the room. Have students use the “Write the Room” recording sheet and write the numbers that each factor card belongs to.
4.Factor Memory: Place a set of penguin number cards and factor cards face down. Turn two cards over, if they match, keep it! If not, turn them back over.
5.Go Fish: Use one or two sets depending on the number of players. Ask “Do you have the factors for the number __?” Match it or go fish!
There are 2 sets for differentiation. Set 1: Numbers 2-25 and Set 2: Random Numbers 26-100.
***Note, the number one and the greatest factor has been left off each factor card to make the matching more challenging.
