Math Rings Game
I had already labeled the hooks with numbers 1-18, so after going to the fair the other weekend, it occurred to me to use the hooks and some plastic rings to create a math ring game.
I purchased 24 plastic rings from Ebay for around $12 (thanks, TpT!). I added some problems involving basic use of parentheses and algebra. All problems had answers ranging from 1 -18.
I wrote the problem on one side and the answer on the other (I used a Sharpie and then covered the numbers with a coat of Mod Podge for protection).
Now in stations, I will have students lay out the rings with the problem on top, solve each one, check the backs, and then place them on the correct hooks (I don't think we'll be tossing. The rings are very weighty for some reason.)
I'm looking forward to playing this on Wednesday with my kiddos. I'm sure someone will ask, "What do we win if we get them all right?" And to that I'll reply as I always do to that sort of question, "Satisfacción en tu corazón," ("Satisfaction in your heart.) :D
Hope you are having an awesome week!
