WOW Game Title: Know Your Facts! CATCH Game: Dragon Tails Content Area: Math TEKS Focus: Multiplication Patters and Number Sense Division Meanings and Facts Physical Education Unit: Locomotor, Physical Fitness Grade: 3 Resource: Paula Bowen Equipment/Materials: Blacktop or field, clothespins with student generated multiplication and division number sentences up to 12 (written on the clothespin) Set Up: This activity is a tag game. Students are in scattered formation. All students have a clothespin pinned on the middle of their back. Extra clothespins are in a basket with the teacher. Activity: This is a “walk only” game. On the teacher’s signal, students attempt to take clothespins from other students. As clothespins are taken, the “taker” hands the clothespin to the student it was taken from. That student takes it to the teacher and answers the equation (Multiplication/Division) on the clothespin. If answered correctly, the teacher keeps the clothespin and switches it with one of the extras. The student may then gain reentry to the game. If answered incorrectly, the student runs the perimeter of the playing area and returns to the teacher to answer the equation. Play continues until time is called. Variations: Clothespins could contain fractions and equivalent fractions Review Questions: Skill focus: Does walking raise your heart rate? Academic focus: What is 12 × 12? What is 12 ÷ 2?
