Math games are so much fun that kids don’t realize they’re learning!
I’ve been having so much fun creating the Mental Math STEM Games for Struggling Students collection of math games for a client that I just couldn’t stop! This new bundle is all about cards. Since I roll my eyes when I see all of the “easy” math games that require teachers to copy and cut entire reams of paper just for one activity center or class period, I specifically created the Mental Math STEM Games Dice Bundle and the Card Bundle to be easy (no, really) and low-prep.
All you need to play these card games is…a deck of standard playing cards. If you don’t have a deck of cards hanging around, you can find them at your local dollar store or download the full-page and half-page versions from the Starfish Education store for free! (I fully realize that puts us back to copying and cutting reams of paper, but I wanted to provide an option if you didn’t have time to Amazon them or get to a store.)
Games in this bundle include:
- Greatest Inferior (number sense, place value)
- Monkey in the Middle (mean, median, mode)
- Perfect Score (fractions, percentages)
- Positively Negative (positive/ negative numbers)
- Robot Race (factors, multiples)
There are, of course, student game boards and score sheets that you can use as needed (they are half-page designed for STEM notebooks) but that’s it! So grab a deck of cards and help students improve their math skills!
