Why Lesson Planet?
Learners work in pairs, and take turns pretending to be a magician. There are a set of instructions for the magician to follow. A penny and a dime are used, and odd and even numbers are employed for multiplying. There is also a nifty game that uses dice. Kids love these kinds of games and usually want to learn them well enough to bring home and demonstrate to their families. One nice aspect of this resource is all of the mental math involved.
