Review Game: 6th Grade Number Sense

This 6th Grade Number Sense Review Game is designed to give your students practice with sixth grade standards throughout your unit of study.

This 6th Grade Number Sense Review Game is designed to give your students practice with sixth grade standards throughout your unit of study.

This free 6th Grade Number Sense Review Game is provided as a PowerPoint. It is designed to help you practice sixth grade standards for number sense.

This review game focus is slightly different than our other ones. The purpose of our other math check is to assess grade level standards.

This set is different because there are few number sense standards in 6th grade. Many of the number skills needed to be successful in 6th grade math are covered in standards in other grades.

However, we know that not all students come to 6th grade with these skills. Because of this, we have created a way for you to quickly see if there are gaps you need to fill in your classroom before or while you are addressing 6th grade math standards.

In many states, sixth grade number sense begins with an assumption that students have mastered place value skills. Because we know that many students need to begin the year by reviewing these skills, this math check begins with some skills that are carried over from the fourth and fifth grades.

You will find the link for the coordinating math check at the bottom of this post.

This review game was created in the hopes of it fitting into classrooms across the nation regardless of your standards.

You can use this game as review for your students before a test.

6th Grade Number Sense

You will find problems covering each standard in this review game.

Problems for the following standards are included:

  • Understand the place value system.
  • Compare two numbers using >, =, and < symbols.
  • Compare numbers with decimals and fractions

This free math game we created has been designed to touch upon each of the standards.

Playing the Game

Correct answers throughout the game are praised with a praise slide!

To play, students need to click on the apple on the first slide and they will be taken to the first problem. When a problem is answered correctly, they will receive a slide giving them some praise. Students click on the praise and are taken to the next problem.

When students answer a problem incorrectly, they will reach some type of  “Try Again” slide and will need to click on those words to be taken back to the original problem for another attempt.

(Incorrect clicks will continue to take them to the “try again” slide.)

The game is created so that the final slide is linked to return to the first slide.
