BRIEF OUTLINE: In groups, the students try to guess your random number.



  • Paper and pen or pencil.



  1. Review numbers from 1 to 20 for lower classes or 1 to 100.
  2. The students will try to guess your random number. The closest number is worth 1 point or the exact number is worth 3 points.
  3. In groups, get each student to write down their guess on a piece of paper
    (eg 7 students will mean 7 numbers).
  4. Say your number to the class. Each group gets the student in their group with the closest number to yours to write it on the board.
  5. If anyone gets the exact number they get 3 points for their team.
  6. The next closest three numbers get 1 point.
  7. Repeat as time permits.



  • You could change the points system to the exact number 5 points. Then the cloest 3 points, 2nd closest 2 points, 3rd closest 1 point etc etc.
  • If students know the numbers up to 100, but you think its to broad, you could choose a range for the students to choose from (ex: 60~100, 45~85).  



  • Try to get the students to repeat the numbers after you to help get them involved.
