Middle School Math Games

Bring Smiles and Learning to Your Classroom!

From time to time every teacher longs to escape from the rigor of the prescribed mathematics curriculum and have some FUN with the students. Now, I’m not talking about mindless, worthless fun. I’m referring to opportunities to break up the normal math classroom routine from time to time with some engaging, fun, and educational math games. Whether it’s only for 5 minutes at the end of a class, or for a longer, planned period of time, math games can be a great addition to your classroom.

Our middle school math games continue to encourage mathematical learning while giving your students a chance to relax for a few minutes and enjoy some friendly competition. Once you play a few of these games you will find students begging you to play “SKUNK” or one of the other great math games available on DigitalLesson.com.

The three middle school math games listed below are FREE!

Print or save these games to your computer for use in your classroom.  “Skunk” is my all-time favorite math game.  My students are always asking me if we are going to play “Skunk” today.  You will also enjoy FDP Bingo (Fraction, Decimal, and Percent Bingo) and Crossing the River.  As with all of our math activities on DigitalLesson.com, full directions and printable math worksheets or game sheets are provided.  Enjoy these fun games as our gift to you!

We also offer our Fantastic Middle School Math Games eBook.  In this exciting resource you will find 12 engaging middle school math games, printable student game sheets, and complete directions on how to use these math games to add life and energy to the learning in your math classroom!  Click on the link below for more information and a description of the games in this eBook.
