Mental Math Warm-up

Grade level: 1-8
Equipment: None
Game Description: Although this is not an actual game, it’s an interesting way to run a basic warm-up while also adding some mental sharpening skills. A warm-up for both the physical and mental! No calculators allowed, just brain power!  The best thing is that it’s easy to prepare… simply write down any math equation on the board (keeping the ability-level of your students in mind). The answer to the equation is how many warm-up actions a student must perform: maybe laps, or stretches, or free throws, or tuck jumps, or arm circles, or lengths, etc, etc. Your choice. Always try to relate your warm-up to the main body of your lesson!
