Many teachers ask us how they can use Interactive Resources in their lessons.With over 400+ Math resources, how could you not?  Addition practice is always welcome at any time of the class period, so why not have your students participate in popping balloons, that is the virtual kind, to get their brains fired up for addition?   Balloon Burst is a great game to get the addition juices going.

Balloon Burst can be played on an Interactive Whiteboard (SMARTBoard, Interwrite, Promethean) where students can compete against each other or as teams, or simply with a screen and projector as a whole class activity where students either raise their hands or call out the answer (wireless boards and clickers can be useful here as well).  The game allows you to set the number of balloons to be automatically popped as well as the degree of difficulty with the numbers (this allows teachers of all levels to use the game, from K-8 and beyond…).  The answer can be typed in when asked for and the game will let the students know if their answer was correct or not.

Great for warm up practice or just to get the kids geared up for their impending math lessons, Balloon Burst is MOST DEFINITELY a crowd pleaser.  Give it a whirl here: http://www.interactive-resources.us/ir_contents_primarygames.htm#
