- In this matching game, students find how many groups of a given number they can make using the pictured items. This is such fun practice for sharing equally into groups! First, students match all the cards. Then they record their answers on a recording sheet.
Gang Plank Grouping
- This is a great follow-up to the above game. In this version, students use visual representations to first model the division. Lastly, after matching all the cards, students record their answers on a recording sheet.
Skull and Bones Subtraction
- Students have cards with visuals of repeated subtraction models to match to a division equation. After matching all the cards, students record their answers on a recording sheet.
- In this game, the focus is on the relationship between multiplication and division. First, students think of division as a missing factor problem. Then, they match all of the cards. Next, they record their answers on a recording sheet.
Ship Wrecked Six
- A favorite division game! First students roll two dice and add the number together. Then, they look at the Pirate’s Key and find their sum to see what division problem with a divisor of 6 they answer. Lastly, they cover that number on the game board. The first player to cover four boxes in a row is the winner!
Steal It Seven
- Like Ship Wrecked Six, the kids love this one! Students first spin a spinner on the gameboard and divide the number they spin by 7. Next, they cover a space on the gameboard that has that quotient. To win, they must be the first one to cover four-in-a-row!
- And yet another fun game board! This one is played like four-in-a-row! But, for this one, students divide the number they spin by 8 and cover a space that has that quotient.
- First, students roll two dice and add the number together. Then they look at the Pirate’s Key and find their sum to see what division problem with a divisor of 9 they answer. Next, they cover that number on the game board. The first player to cover four boxes in a row is the winner!
