Your students will continue to rely on the order of operations as they move on to middle school math, so make sure to review PEMDAS (or GEMDAS) as they approach the end of fifth grade. Turn it into a game by presenting your students with a puzzle. Write an expression on the board and offer three answer choices, each with a letter associated with it. Repeat with several expressions so that, by the end, your students can spell a phrase with the letters they chose for each answer. For example, 8+2x5 equals 18 (R) and after solving all expressions, students spell RECESS!
