Designed for second grade.Materials Needed:Magic Marker (black or navy)Neon Construction Paper (five colors)Index CardsMagnetic TapeScissorsName and Diagram of eight geometric shapes:   Circle   Square   Diamond   Rectangle   Triangle   Hexagon   Octagon   PentagonStrategy:Cut out each of the above shapes in five different colors (40 shapes).Cut one extra set of shapes with the proper name that correctly identifies that   shape and use for demonstration.          Write primary math problems (using four operations) on index cards, select four   exact answers per problem, and tape a card to back side of neon paper. Using magnetic tape, scatter 40 designs and attach to magnetic board. Divide class into two equal teams, one captain per team, and designate playing      area for each team.  Place demonstration shapes beside (for reference) scattered shapes. Activity:  Alternate one player from each team to call the color and shape (e.g. yellow hexagon and blue pentagon) and the captain of that player's team will turn the cards over to show math problems.  Player must state the problems and the answers.  If the answers are a match (e.g. 5+5=10 and 20-10=10), that player continues to play until no match is made.  As the first player moves to the end of their team's line, play begins with the next person in line on the opposite team.   Points may be assigned by giving a number value for every match obtained.  The team with the highest number of matches or the most points is the winner. `
