Math Beach Ball
What you need: A beach ball, permanent marker
Preparation: First be sure to inflate the beach ball. This game can be used played using addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division facts. With the permanent marker, write the numbers 0 through 10 all over the ball. Each of the numbers can and should be written more than once on the ball.
How to Play: You can play the game with one or more students at a time. Toss the beach ball to student. You should stand at a reasonable distance from the student so the ball reaches them on the fly.
The player catches the ball and keeps his or her hands in the same place after making the catch. After catching the ball, the student looks to see what numbers on the beach ball their thumbs are touching.
These are the two numbers that they will add together. They should be given a time set by you to answer the question. Have Fun!
