Hold a maths Marathon!

Third Grade Math Activities: Hold a Math Marathon!

What You Need:

  • Chalk
  • Flashcards of choice (addition or multiplication)
  • At least 3 players, two to race and one to hold the flashcards

What You Do:

  1. Set-Up. With the chalk, draw a line on the ground as the starting line and another line as the finishing line. The finishing line can be as short or as far away as desired; the longer the distance is, the longer the game will be.
  2. Get ready to play! Have each child stand behind the starting line.
  3. Show the children a flashcard from any maths deck.
  4. The first child to shout out the answer gets to take one step forward. Each child advances when he says the correct answer. If a child does not answer correctly, they have to stay where they are.
  5. The objective of the game is to get as many maths facts correctly as needed to get to the finishing line. The first child to make it to the finishing line first wins!
