A Geometry Game

Hey everyone!

My second grade team and I are starting our unit on geometry, so I thought I'd make a game we could use in our centers.  This game is aligned to second grade core content for geometry standards.  It is fun way for students to review all the concepts we will teach in our geometry unit.  The game is Willy Wonka themed, which I think the kids will love.  You can purchase the game at either my TPT shop or my TeachersNotebook shop.  Included is: the game board, 27 lollipop cards (fronts and backs for each card), 27 golden ticket cards (fronts and backs for each card), directions for students, an answer key, and directions for setting it up.

The lollipop cards focus on shapes and their attributes.  The golden ticket cards focus on partitioning shapes and making fractions for shaded areas of partitioned shapes.  Each card has a number on it so students can find it on the answer key.  This allows students who are playing the game together to check each other's answers.

The game board comes in two pieces.  It is perfect for cutting out and gluing inside of a file folder.

Here is the game board...

This is an example of some of the lollipop cards...
 Here is the back of the lollipop cards.  You can print off the front (questions) and turn the paper and print the lollipops on the back.

This is an example of the golden ticket cards...
 Here is the back of the golden ticket cards.  Again, you can print the front (the question side) and turn over the page and print the back on the other side.

My second graders love any chance they get to play a game and they don't even realize how much they are learning.  If you use the game in a center, it is a great for cooperative learning.

A special thanks to Nikki at Melonheadz Illustrating for the cute Willy Wonka clipart and KPM Doodles for the game board.
