Come along and join the Turkey Trot!
Do you need a fun way for your students to practice memorizing the basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division facts? How about a math center perfect for the month of November? Try the simple game on this file.
One side of a paper card has an addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division fact, and the other side will have the corresponding answer. Students play by solving the problems that are face-up on a card, self-check the answer on the back, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move along the path of leaf-covered stones.

●Turkey Trot game board

●set of 128 question cards with the basic facts (0-12)
●set of 128 cards with the corresponding answers
Your students are certain to have a blast playing this game, all the while sharpening their automatic recall of the answers to the basic facts.
