Star Wars Math
Addition and subtraction within 20
If you will be using this activity in a classroom or coop with multiple children, or if you have the biggest Star Wars fan at your house, I suggest printing on cardstock or laminating for durability. Then this activity can be done over and over and over again for lots of fun math practice with this addition game.
Star Wars Activity
This super cute math game for kindergartners and 1st graders requires very little prep. Simply use scissors to cut the death stars out and cut the x wing fighter plane addition equations apart. It’s that simple!
Addition and Subtraction Activity
Students will solve the equations and place them around the death star with the correct sum. Above 2+2 equals 4 so the xwing goes by the #4 death star.
There are so many variations of this fun, educational activity depending on your students abilities:
- You can start by only giving them 2-3 death stars and all the rebel fighter jets whose addition equations equal the sum on the death star. This limits the number of cards they need to sort through (HINT: if you laminate the printable pages students can solve the equations and write that number with a dry erase marker on the addition cards.)
- The next step would be to place all the death stars numbers 1-10 so your student can work on addition within 10
- Next, you can work on addition to 20 with all 20 death stars to sort through
- Finally, there are some subtraction resistance fighters in the mix you can add in for students to sneak in some subtraction practice as well.
