Task cards are great to use with your students. They have many uses. 

Task cards can be used for

warm ups
math centers
early finishers
exit tickets
games

Yep, you read that right. GAMES!

I loved pairing my students up for a relay game involving task cards that I called Havoc Relays. The kids were able to work together to solve math problems, move around every once in awhile, do a bit of talking, and enjoy math.

Warning: If you don't like a bit of chaos in your room, this will not be the game for you.

Materials for Havoc Relays:

☑ set or 2 of task cards - If you don't have task cards, then you can write math problems on index cards.
☑ paper for work & answers
☑ pencil

Before the Havoc Game Begins:

☑ Pair up your students and have their desks next to each other.
☑ Place task cards in various places in the room.
☑ Decide on an amount of time to play. (Students do not need to complete all of the problems.)

How to Play Havoc Relay Game:

☑ On your "go", one person from each team will get up and retrieve a task card. They take it back to their partner and both solve the problem. 
☑ Once they agree on an answer, the next person takes the card back and gets a new card they have not completed.
☑ This continues until time is up.
☑ Check answers after your time is up to see how the teams did.
☑ Provide a reward if you want.

Your students will love this game and won't mind doing math because they

✎ can move around
✎ can talk a bit
✎ get to play a game
✎ will have a partner for some confidence
