My classes love these math relay races:

  • I get relays printed in sets and laminated.
  • students work in pairs; run out to my desk; get Q1; attempt to solve it and use a whiteboard pen to write the answer on the card.  
  • Students then bring the answer to me. If the students get the answer right,  then they get Q2. If  the answer is incorrect, then I might give them another shot.
  • Repeat!

Enjoy these math relay races?

This lesson plan is amazing. I will have to adjust this to Kindergarten but they love to race while moving around the room. I'm excited to use this activity for review.

I cannot be able to thank you enough for sharing such an amazing resource! I worked with high school kids who are between 3 to 4 grades below grade level, but are very competitive with each other. These relay-activities are the perfect tools to engage them, promote team work, and build confidence and thinking skills. Thank you so much!

Since we only have a few days until the end of the term I will not be able to use these resources this year, but I so look forward to utilizing them next year! Thank you for sharing such an abundance of materials and including answer keys. That is always a bonus!

Excellent resource. Classes really enjoyed the challenges and were enthusiastic about problems which would have been 'boring' in a textbook. Thank you.
