My Math Window
- Have the students create their own math windows.
- Give the students construction paper that has been divided into 9 squares.
- Have each student write their name on the center square.
- At the top of each of the remaining boxes, have the students put down numbers that mean something to them (birthday, address, telephone number, number of siblings, jersey number, etc.) and then draw an illustration below those numbers to show what they represent.
- After everyone is finished, have the class present their math windows to the class.
- Display them around the room.
What’s My Number –
- Write different numbers on index cards. Make sure you have enough for each student.
- Have all of the students face the same direction and tape these numbered index cards to their backs.
- It will be the students’ jobs to figure out what number they have on their back by asking questions of their classmates.
- The students must introduce themselves and then ask their classmates yes and no questions about their numbers.
- For example, they might ask if the number is even, if it is greater or lesser than a specific number, or if it has two digits.
- They can only ask the same person three questions. Once they reach that three-question limit the students must move on to another classmate if they still haven’t figured out the answer.
- Have the students arrange themselves once they have figured out their number
