Who needs the luck of the Irish when you have Qwizy's St. Patrick's Day themed matching games instead? My students always enjoyed matching games and would even race each other to see who could to finish first. This quickly lead to some students becoming not quite so engaged in completing the math problems themselves and rather eager to sneak peeks over their shoulders to take a look at their neighbors' desks. I loved their competitiveness and didn't want to give up all together with the matching activities, which lead to Qwizy's creation of bulk sets of Matching games with 5 different sets of question cards for teachers to hand out to their students at random.
The 5 different versions also encourage students to help each other and inspires math talk in your classroom. I have seen some students take a break on their activity to explain the process of solving the math problem to their classmates instead of just giving them the answer simply because their peer's math questions are different than their own.
Each St. Patrick's Day Matching Game, sold on TPT, contains 5 different Matching Card sets for you and your students. Math concepts range from 2nd grade math all the way up to AP Calculus. Let’s check out a few of these Matching Games:
