Math Games for 3rd Graders

Learning factors can be a bit tough, especially given all the different numbers that can be attached to multiple numbers as factors. This game makes for a fun way to help your child get comfortable with the concept of factoring.

What You Need:

  • Paper
  • Marker
  • Box of crayons
  • Friend

What You Do:

  1. Using the marker, help your child write the numbers one through 30 on the paper, in six rows of five numbers.
  2. Playing the game is simple. Have your child pick a crayon color and color around a random number, say 12.
  3. Next, have the other child take the crayon and color in all the factors of the number the first child picked. So, for our example of 12, the child would want to color the following numbers: 6, 4, 3, 2 and 1.
  4. Then, have the kids switch roles.
  5. If a number is already colored in, it doesn’t need to be colored in a second time.
  6. The game is over when there are no more numbers with uncolored factors.
