Towards the end of the school year I am always looking for fun games and ways to review math. I have posted about some of them in the past. This year I got some plastic eggs and put a math problem in each one. I numbered the eggs and then hid them around the room while the kids were at prep.
When they came in they each got a recording sheet with 23 numbered, blank boxes on it (similar to the recording sheet that you would use for the game "scoot" if you are familiar with that). I then explained the rules that students had to find each of the eggs and put the answer to the question in the corresponding box. There was also a rule that there was not to be more than one person at an egg at a time and the eggs needed to be put back right where they were found.
The kids were completely engaged and had a great time with the review. I love when I can let them be a little more active while still being engaged in learning or in this case reviewing.
While I did this at the end of the year, it could also work as a review for a single unit in math or be adapted and used as an activity to practice a literacy skill.
It's feels good to be blogging again, hopefully I can keep it up through the summer and do a little next year too!
If you would like a copy of the review questions I used, you can find them here. Happy hunting!
