Decimal Operations Claw Machine Interactive Review Game
Looking for a fun, no-prep way to review decimal addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with your students? This unique claw machine game is sure to be a hit with your classes!
This comprehensive review of decimals features 25 questions of varying difficulty levels spanning 5 different category topics:
– adding decimals
– subtracting decimals
– multiplying decimals
– dividing decimals
– decimal word problems (mixed operations)
*** This game features only POSITIVE decimals! ***
Each topic has a question worth 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 points. (Harder questions are worth more). You can play with 2, 3, 4, or 5 teams or play without teams if you do not want to play competitively.
Simply click on the screen (or have students throw a koosh ball or small stuffed animal at the board if you have an interactive whiteboard that supports touch) to drop the crane that is moving back and forth. It will pull up a random question from the category it is in front of. Have students answer the question, check their answers by clicking the “answer” button, and award points to the teams. Continue until all questions are asked or you run out of time. Final scores and standings will be displayed when the game ends.
