ZAP can address all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). The game could even be differentiated to meet different levels present in the classroom. The teacher could group students by level and create different Popsicle sticks for each group. This game is a fun way to encourage practice of basic facts. It is similar to a drill activity because Popsicle sticks are placed back into the cup if answered wrong, or if a ZAP stick is picked. This allows for repeated practice of problems.
This product includes a sheet with directions and materials needed as well as the ZAP printout to glue onto the cup!
