Around the World: Great for 3rd and 4th grade but also can be adapted for other grades.

MATERIALS: large flash cards

Two Player Instructions:
Have a speed race to see who can go “around the world” with the most points. Each child starts with zero points. Show them each a math flashcard. The quickest correct answer earns one point. The first one to 10 points is the winner.

Whole class Instructions:
Students sit in a circle. Choose a starting person. This student stands behind the next student in the circle. The teacher holds up a flash card. The first student to say the answer stands behind the next person in the circle. If a sitting student says the answer first, the standing student sits down in the winner’s chair.

This process continues until at least one student makes it completely around the circle.
