Come along and join the Turkey Trot!
Do you need a fun way for your students to practice the skill of solving exponents? 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 a base (1-10) with an exponent (0-9), and the other side will have the correct answer. Students play by solving the problems that are face-up on a question 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.
This file contains:
●Turkey Trot game board
●recording sheets for students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)
●a paper-clip spinner (minus the paper-clip)
●suggested procedures and management
●set of 100 question cards
●set of 100 corresponding answer cards
●set of 10 blank question cards for bases and exponents not included
●set of 10 blank corresponding answer cards for the simplified bases and exponents of your choice.
All bases are between 1 and 10, and all exponents are between 0 and 9.
Your students are certain to have a blast playing this game, all the while sharpening their ability to solve exponents.
