#5. Skittles Math

Mathematics, level: elementary
Posted by Mara Sloan (
Lemira Elementary, USA
Materials Required: skittles, paper, pencil, blackboard
Activity Time: 15 minutes
Concepts Taught: math

At the end of every math class, I put ten problems on the board, usually problems reviewing the concept taught that day but sometimes basic math facts. Students complete the problems on their own paper. Students get a piece of Skittles candy for each problem right. As a class, we review the problems.
