This activity is designed as a center. It may be used in a variety of ways; namely as a domino-like (connection) word problem activity or a matching game. We called it a connection because the use of the word “domino” may be frowned upon. The students are to connect the questions to the correct answers. Note: The answers to the questions are not labeled. For example, if the answer is 53 miles, only the number 53 will be on the game piece.
Version A- (Connection)
Cut out along the outer border. The pieces should be in pairs. Students are to solve the word problems and locate the answer to that word problem on one of the other game pieces. They are to join the question with the correct answer. The completed activities’ shape will be a square.
Version B: Concentration
This may be used as an individual assignment or a partner activity. Cut out all of the pieces into individual parts. Students are to match the questions with the correct answers. The student that matches the most correct answers wins.
