Guess That Number

It is summer break and therefore project time!  I love having time in the summer to get ready for the new school year.  My to-do list right now has about 50 things on it.  We will see how many I get through. 

I have seen people revamp Guess Who games to be faces of presidents or other people.  I got a Guess Who game from my mom.  There were a couple of faces missing, so I decided that I would revamp it and make it into a math game for my kids.  It will be great for practicing place value and for practicing using the terminology "odd", "even", "less than", and "greater than".  I'm sure that it will quickly become a favorite math fast finisher activity.

Here are some pictures:

After I printed out the numbers I mounted them on card stock to make them more durable and to make them look good from the back.  This will also keep the two sets of numbers separate should they be taken out for any reason. 

I printed 3 sets of the same numbers.  I used one set for each board and the other set as the cards to draw from.  The numbers in blue are odd and the numbers in black are even to help my lower kids be successful. 

I also made a sheet with the different questions students could ask.  This will help them to use the proper terminology as they play.

Here are the questions:

Is your number odd?
Is your number even?
Is your number greater than ____?
Is your number less than _____?
Is the number in the tens place greater than ____?
Is the number in the tens place less than ____?
Is the number in the ones place greater than____?
Is the number in the ones place less than____?
Does your number have a ____ in the tens place?
Does your number have a ____ in the ones place?
Is your number ____?

Let me know what you think!
