NAME OF ACTIVITY: Math Munchers
GRADE LEVEL: 2-12
EQUIPMENT NEEDED: 30-50 tennis balls, or other items you can Number and symbol (index cards, scrabble tiles) and 1 hula hoop or carpet square per team. Dome markers or other similar item to hide the numbers and symbols.
HIGHLIGHTS: Running, team strategy, math integration, and teamwork
INSTRUCTIONS: I have each team base, set up an equal
distance from the center of the playing area. each team uses a
carpet square or hula-hoop as their base. In the center of the
playing area place the numbers and math symbols (tennis balls), under
the dome markers. The object of the game is to be the first team
to create a designated math problem. Ex. Be the first team to
create a true math equation. You can make this as simple as
difficult as you wish. I let my students use addition,
subtraction, division and multilication. However, you could take
this to virtually any level.
HINTS: When players get a ball (letter), they need to leave
the dome upside down, so the other teams know it is empty.
