Egg Carton Shake Up!

Egg Carton Shake Up!.

This is a great activity for numeracy centres!  I can also see it as a great game for fast finishers.  I imagine it would be much quieter than dice in a box.  😀

You have to try this!

Students can play in pairs or a small group taking turns to shake it up and multiply the factors that the counters land on.  It is easy to implement and has the potential to become a student favourite.  This link has instructions to create the resource (although I’m sure you can infer from context) and how to use it with students.

I just had a great idea.  You could turn this into a homework task!  The kids can create their own and then use it to play at home with their parents.  That sounds like way more fun than writing out number facts over and over
