So, if you have a few minutes of math time leftover and want a quick game, try this.
- 2 Whiteboard erasers
Step 1: Write 10 or so numbers on the board like so:
Step 2: Invite two students up to the board and give them each an eraser.
Step 3: Call out a math fact or problem with a corresponding answer on the board.
Step 4: Whoever erases the number first wins. The loser gives his eraser to the next student.
And that's it. It sounds just too simple, but I promise they'll love it. 6 year-olds and 12 year olds alike. It's been a great tool for me to use anytime I have a few minutes to fill.
