3 different versions of this popular classic with a twist. Communication, competition, maths and fun all rolled into one. Just print and go.
Students get a board/grid. Draw the ships onto it and then do sums to fire on their target. If they are wrong, their turn is wasted (they have to debate this with their partner). If correct, they hit or miss.
Three versions to allow speedy mathematicians to continue to play while the slower ones just continue with their game.
A presentation to introduce the process of pulling apart a fractions word question. Starts with a story involving a child sharing her chocolate and leads through the process of searching for important information and solving the sum, then using the answer for the previous sum to answer the next question with the information in the PPT.
There is then a question which allows students to try for themselves, with a simpler feedback section.
Finally, there is a worksheet. The worksheet contains the two questions from the PPT as well as three more questions (with multiple sub-questions).

A simple PPT lesson which will introduce interpreting and handling data, specifically with relation to column charts/ bar graphs.
It begins by asking students to guess what a blank graph could represent (interpreting data), before moving on to various graphs with questions designed to introduce the vocabulary related to graphs (axis/axes, mode, range) while also interpreting the data.
There is one slide at the end which asks a number of questions to check understanding of the vocabulary and to interpret the graph, and then a final slide which asks students to create their own survey question and think about what the graph could look like.
Communicative or individual activity including 3 different sheets of Alien code, the answer key, and a key to help students with the decoding.
3 sets of Alien code with a key. Leave the code or messages in a 'space ship' for students to find and let them find the other part elsewhere or simply explain that you 'found these strange messages at home'. Students either communicate to decode the messages or work individually, depending what you want them to do the activity for.
Sheet 1 are motivational 'fortune cookie' style messages.
Sheet 2 include a treasure hunt based on 5 clues. Sufficiently generic to work in any school.
Sheet 3 is a letter from the aliens requesting help. Students decode the message and then the teacher produces a list of whatever the students need to do in order to help them (for example, complete their maths homework, or find the answer to a difficult question.).
The children (grades 2-8) I've done this activity with have loved it!

A lovely Alien message decoding activity setting a task for students to do on the topic of racism.
They must first decode the message, which tells them that racism, prejudice and discrimination are problems. They then have to find the meaning of these words and do a show or a poster introducing the topic and how these problems can be addressed.
This Alien code activity works well with the Racism, discrimination and prejudice introductory PPT
Such a fun way to remind kids to always read the instructions.
Step 1. Read all the instructions.
Steps 2-9. Lots of challenges involving drawing, clapping, jumping, hugging and shouting.
Step 10. Don't do steps 2-9. Hand in your paper to receive a prize.

[Note: This is a one page resource. As an added bonus, it includes my dice roller tool for free - never worry if you don't have dice again!]
A PPT which breaks down word problems to create simple algebraic equations before solving them.
Funny stories make the questions, so I'd suggest you update the PPT with your students' names.
After you've done this as a class, you can then use the last slides on the PPT to let students have a try, and give them a 2 question worksheet to try alone.
