Teaching Strategies- A Math Magic Square Game

Games are a fun way to introduce a new topic, summarize a topic or check for understanding. 

Magic square games provide instant feedback as to correct answers, as each row and column should total to be the same number.  

This example uses Stranger Safety as the topic. Students read the sentences and then find the missing word in the table.  The sentence number is written in the square with the correct word. Once all sixteen sentences are completed in this manner, students total all rows and columns to come up with the 'magic number.'

Magic squares can made for 9, 16, 25 or more sentences.

Stranger Safety Magic Squares is a great way to teach math skills in combination with concepts any academic subject!
