This game has been a huge hit with our children. With knowledge in place, this game can be modelled first by the teacher and then played by groups of children, pairs of children or children on their own as a math centre activity.
The game is easy. Once the parts have been printed and laminated to protect the resources for many years of use, children pick a game card and, using the game pieces, recreate the image on the card. Once the image has been recreated, the children must solve all four questions on the game card. Children must use the presentation of ratio, as well as reducing the equations if they are able.
The game comprises of 144 game pieces and 20 question cards (each with four questions on).
The children love this game.
As an extension, our children use the game pieces to create their own images and then ask their own questions to their partners to see if they can apply their knowledge of ratio - going way beyond 2, 3 or 4 categories and combining many of the images.
It is an ideal Math Centre activity as children can work together on this once they have been taught how to play. They enjoy the challenge and competitive nature of the game. As teachers, we often use the game as a warm up to remind and embed previous learning.
Please view the preview folder to see the quality of the resources and how you can use this resource your own teaching.
As an extension, if you are about to embark on Probability we have put together a BUNDLE of three resources (language cards, game and PowerPoint presentation) to support teaching from the very beginning of a topic to embedding learning in the children.
