Stay Standing

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: A Visitor

'Stay Standing' is a game which could be played with any age group and to reinforce any mental agility strategy.

I use it with finding fractions of whole numbers. These are printed on cards and displayed infront of two players at a time. The game begins with one pupil standing behind his neighbour who is seated at his desk.

The first pupil to answer correctly (1/5 of 75 , 1/3 of 66 etc) stands behind the next pupil and so on until he is beaten and has to sit down in the place of the pupil who beat him - the new contestant. His score can be the target to beat for that day.

It can be made as gameshow-like as desired. 'Will you stay standing or will you go home with nothing?'
