class into two teams. Draw a huge square on the board and divide
it into 9 smaller squares. Place a different number in each square.
One member from each team comes to board, gets a fly swatter and
faces you, the teacher, as you call out a problem. Once the problem
has been called students turn around and using their fly swatter
hit the correct answer. The first student to hit the correct answer
wins a point for that team. You can have the winning player stay
up until he loses or have two new ones come up every time. So that
students don't have to compete against the same player every time
have students switch seating after one full round. This is an awesome
game for review. I have used it for multipication, division, subtraction,
addition, money and anything else I could think of.
really really enjoy this game! Be sure, before the game starts,
to give consequences for hitting a student with fly swatter. I did
and no one ever hit anyone because they didn't want to have to stop
playing the game.
heard about this game through my students and came to check it out
themselves. I received numerous compliments from them and others
on this game. So hope you and your students enjoy this as much as
my class did.
