Do you need a fun and exciting way for your students to practice the skill of adding and subtracting whole numbers within 1000? Get in line and take the Penguin Plunge! This simple, penguin-inspired math activity or learning center is perfect for the winter months. Just print and play!
Three different sets of recording sheets and game cards are included on this file. I prefer to use the first set as an introductory, whole-class activity, and then use the second and third sets as a learning center for the remainder of the season or month. An additional file with Sets 4, 5, & 6
is available for purchase to extend the fun well throughout the season.
There are two methods of play; solely dependent upon the amount of time you have available in preparation for this fun activity. Students play by solving the problems on game cards or recording sheets, self-check their answers using provided answer keys, and if correct, they move along the leaf-covered trail of stepping stones.
This file contains:
●suggested procedures and management for both methods of play (whole-class and learning center)
●2 Penguin Plunge game boards… one colored, the other for your students to color.
●2 paper-clip spinners with 6- and 8-outcomes.
●3 adding whole numbers within 1000 recording sheets (for teachers to have answer documentation)
●3 subtracting whole numbers within 1000 recording sheets
●3 sets of 16 adding whole numbers within 1000 question and answer cards
●3 sets of 16 subtracting whole numbers within 1000 question and answer cards
●1 set of blank recording sheets and answer keys
●1 set of 32 blank question and answer cards
Your students are certain to have a fantastic time playing this game, all the while sharpening their ability to add and subtract whole numbers within 1000.
