Product Description
This cooperative-learning game is a modification of Kagan's game 'snowball'. Pairs of equivalent fractions, decimals, and percents are printed on alternating colors of paper (I usually use yellow and orange so the wadded up papers look more like popcorn). The teacher brings in a large box or bucket as the 'popcorn' tub.

All students with the same color of paper line up and face the others who have a different color. When the teacher says “POP!”, students wad up their papers and toss them into the box. Students move quickly back to their seats. As the teacher comes around, students choose a piece of popcorn that is a DIFFERENT color than they started with. Students have 1 minute at their desks for think time. After 1 minute, students try to find their match, pair up, and check their pairing with the teacher. Repeat.

The zip file includes 18 pairs of numbers and a powerpoint of game instructions that can be projected to help students remain on task.
