Hold a Math Marathon!

What You Need:

  • Chalk
  • Flashcards of choice (addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division)
  • At least 3 players, two to race and one to hold the flashcards

What You Do:

  1. Draw a starting line and finishing line on the ground with the chalk. The finishing line can be as close or as far away as desired. The longer the distance is, the longer the game will be.
  2. Get ready to play! Have each child stand behind the starting line.
  3. Show the children a flashcard from the math deck.
  4. The first child to shout out the answer gets to take one step forward. Each child advances when they say the correct answer. If a child does not answer correctly, they have to stay where they are.
  5. The objective of the game is to answer as many math facts correctly as needed to get to the finishing line. The first child to make it to the finishing line first wins!
