MathemActive Triangle Game
Students become the solution to this life-size triangle math puzzle!
Employ problem solving and communication with a kinesthetic twist as students jump over each other to solve a giant puzzle where they are the puzzle pieces! Students take their places on the large circles on the triangle mat, leaving one circle vacant at one of the corners. Discussing each move as a group, players move to vacant circles by hopping over or walking around a teammate. The “hopped" teammates are eliminated and continue to provide tactical input from the sideline. Eliminate all but one student to solve the puzzle! After each attempt, discuss challenges and solutions before resetting to solve it again. Thousands of solutions are possible! Or take a break from puzzling to calculate the area of the triangle. Included lesson direction is adaptable for Grades K-4 and 5-8. The included lesson direction details setup instructions, activities by grade level, learning objectives, and teaching suggestions to expand lessons. Kit includes 6-1/2'L x 7-1/2"W vinyl mat and lesson direction. Recommended for Elementary and up.
