This set of task cards provides all you need for a full hour of fun. The activity is designed to have students work in groups and OUT OF THEIR SEATS! It contains 16 question cards and 4 Bonus cards (Kaboom, lose a turn, steal a card, & a bonus turn), a coordinating answer worksheet, and a solution key. My student are VERY competitive and LOVE playing with the Bonus cards as described below.
Option 1: Each team/group will work on one card and complete the appropriate section, then swap for a new one until all have been worked. Cards can be left 4 to a sheet or cut apart for this style of play.
Option 2: Cards must be cut apart as well as 1 or 2 sheets of the “Bonus” cards. All cards will be face down and when a student draws a card, he/she answers it. If all other players agree with the solution, the player keeps that card. If a Bonus card is drawn, the player follows the directions on that card. The player with the most cards at the end of the allotted time is the winner. THIS IS PART OF A LARGER SET I HAVE LISTED (SIMPLE AND COMPOUND INTEREST COMBINED).
I have included two versions of the cards, one in grayscale, and the other in color, for a total of 32 cards. Either way, you will probably want to print a class set on cardstock and laminate them for future years.
The larger combined set can be found here:
