Up or down maths
Maths can be a troubling subject to grasp but by turning it into fun for kids, maths can become easy to learn! Up or down maths gives kids a 50/50 chance of getting the numbers correct. Call out numbers for fast paced action.
Number of players:
What you need:
- pens or markers
- a caller
Give each child a piece of paper and a pen.
The caller should also have a piece of paper with 20 random numbers written down one side.
Place an arrow next to each number - either up or down.
Call out those numbers to the players in the game. For example, 35 - UP or 43 - DOWN.
The players are to write the correct answers on their pieces of paper. For example, 35 - UP would be 36 and 43 - DOWN would be 42.
At the end of the 20 numbers called, the player with the most correct answers wins.
Notes: Having the caller's sheet will make it easier to mark the correct answers at the end.
