Activity Suggestion: Math King


After you have taught plus, minus, times, and divided by using the worksheets above, print off a set of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division flashcards and play 'The Math King'.  It is a very simple game to do and will get the kids using the language of math very quickly.


Here's how you play. The whole class lines up and tries to challenge the current math king. The teacher holds up a random flashcard and the current king and the new challenger (the first person in the line) race to shout out the answer. If they shout out the answer correctly, then the teacher points to the student who shouted first and that person has to make a sentence. For example, if the flashcards is 2x2, the the teacher will point to the first student who says four. That student will then have to say, 'two times two is four.'


If the student does this correctly then they win the match. If it is the current king who is first then he or she just remains the king and the challenger goes to the back of the line. If it is the challenger who wins, then the challenger becomes the new king and the old king goes to the back of the line. The next student in line becomes the new challenger. It's a great activity for even your youngest learners in elementary school.
