Play the Fish for Numbers Game!

Posted by teacher on September 2, 2016

What You Need:

  • Construction paper in various colors
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Magnet
  • Paper clips
  • Dowel or Tinker Toy to form the handle of the fishing pole
  • String to form the fishing line
  • Super glue

What You Do:

  1. Cut ten fish shapes, each about 6-inches long, out of the different colors of construction paper.
  2. Write a different number from 1 to 10 on each fish.
  3. Punch a hole in each one near the mouth area. Slide a paper clip through each hole to attach.
  4. Tie the string to the dowel to make a fishing rod.
  5. Use the super glue to adhere the magnet to the end of the string. Let it dry thoroughly.
  6. To play: Scatter the fish so that the numbers are clearly visible. Tell your child, “I’m hungry for a number 4 fish!” and watch him hunt for it, then carefully lower the “rod” until the magnet catches the paper clip and he reels it in. Repeat with other numbers until all the fish are caught for a game that’s so fun, it doesn’t even feel like math practice!
