Today, we’re excited to introduce you to a math game that we’re sure your students will love. It’s called “Sink or Swim” and it’s designed to help 5th graders practice and improve their understanding of graphing on a coordinate plane.
This game is perfect for the classroom or at home learning and can be played by 2-4 players. All you need is a standard deck of cards and a coordinate plane.
To play “Sink or Swim,” each player chooses a symbol and marks 10 coordinates on the grid. Players then take turns drawing two cards and calling out the corresponding coordinates. If a player’s marked coordinate is called, they must “sink” it by marking it with a box symbol. If all of a player’s marked coordinates are “sunk,” they are eliminated from the game. The game continues until only one player is left, who is declared the winner.
One of the things we love about this game is that it’s not only fun, but it’s also educational. It provides a great opportunity for students to practice and reinforce their understanding of graphing on a coordinate plane in a interactive and engaging way.
So if you’re a teacher looking for a new math activity for your students or a parent looking for a fun and educational way to help your child practice math skills at home, be sure to check out “Sink or Swim.” You can find it over on Teachers Pay Teachers.
