Fishin' For Addition
(or Subtraction, Multiplication, or Division!)

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff

Download the document below, which contains a picture of a fish, the "student instruction sheet" as well as the "student worksheet". Make as many copies of the fish as needed onto colored carstock. Write math problems on each fish. (What kind of problems depends on the grade you are teaching) Laminate for durability and place in a small fish bowl.

Two students at this math center will take turns pulling a fish out from the bowl. Each student must also have their own accompanying workseet. They must write what the problem is on the worksheet provided, as well as the answer.

Play continues until all of the fish are gone. The two players will then transfer all of their "answers" over to the "answer column" and add together for points. The student with the most points wins!
