One of my youngest son’s favorite party games is the balloon dart throw. Each year for his birthday party I come up with some way to incorporate the game. I fill them with party favors such as mini lego sets or minifigs and his friends get to keep the prize and put it together when they pop them.
When I was brainstorming next year’s theme, I realized this would make a great task! I have filmed several of these for different grade levels. This is a great one for 1.OA.A.1, 1.OA.B.4, 1.OA.C.5 for adding within 20 and missing addends. It also could be used for the second grade fluency standard, 2.OA.B.2.
Possible Question: How many balloons were popped?
12 total balloons
I threw 10 darts and missed three times. On my ninth throw I popped two balloons with one dart.
OR less challenging: there are 4 balloons left.
