Harry Potter Maths

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Nic

My class love the Harry Potter game I made up.

We sit in a circle and I call 2 children in to the middle. The children stand back to back and when I say they start walking away from each other. I call out a maths problem (add, subtract, multiply, divide) and the first child to get the answer must turn round and 'zap' the other child with their wand before they can answer.

The pupils love this game and are always asking to play it!

I have now used this with year 2 up to year 6. I purchased 2 Harry Potter wands and a pair of Harry Potter glasses. The winner gets to wear the Harry Potter glasses and chooses the next challenger, but it must go boy, girl, boy, girl etc.. The children love this game. It also is a good indicator for the teacher to discern what they don't know, especially times tables.
