**Teacher Directions: **

- Take colored pieces of paper and lay them around your classroom. I used red, yellow, blue, green, orange and yellow and this is the order I laid them out. Choose a pattern and keep it throughout the room.
**Teaching Note:**I had different pathways but it was confusing to students. I changed my papers to only travel one path in my classroom.

- On white pieces of paper, have the four math operations (plus, minus, times, and divide).
**Teaching Note:**You only need one copy of each. Spread these out amongst the colored sheets.

- On the first paper, write start. On the last paper, write finish.
- Deck of cards, You need to have the four operation symbols + colors of paper on the ground in the card deck for the game.
**Teaching Note:**I used the google documents playing card template to make my deck.

- To mark the game board, use things already in your room. (stapler, tape, pencil, cups, etc.)
**Teaching Note:**You need enough for each group to have one. - Place students into groups of 3-4.
- Give students a problem set. You could share a Google Document with them, give them a worksheet, assign them problems from their book, hang problems on the wall, etc.)
