Odd vs. Even
Switch up rock, paper, scissors to help kids with math! Two player game, one person is "odds" and the other is "evens." Kids shake their fist, chant "1,2,3, shoot!" Then, they stick out zero, one, two, three, four, or five fingers. Kids find the sum of their fingers. If the answer is even, then evens gets a point. If it's odd, odds gets a point.
Note: Remind kids that even if they are an even, they can still hold out an odd number of fingers. The answer to the problem is what they consider odd or even.
