Dividing Decimals Bingo

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 17 pages | Grades: 5 - 6

Master the ability to divide with decimals by playing a whole-class bingo game.

Practice How to Divide with Decimals

Learning to divide with decimals involves a lot of practice and precision. Students have to have a good understanding of their division facts to help them determine quotients. Look no further if you are looking for a whole-class activity for your students to practice this decimal operation skill!

To play, distribute one bingo card to each student and a set of counters to cover the game board spaces. Display one of the 24 calling cards to the students and encourage them to find the quotient. Once students find the correct answer on their bingo card, they must cover it with a counting chip or marker. The first student to get a bingo configuration on their card wins!

Through this activity, students will show they can divide a decimal by a whole number and a decimal by a decimal.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your math lessons. 

In addition to individual student work time, use this bingo game to enhance learning through guided math groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments. 

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

Help students who need help understanding the concepts by providing a multiplication chart to help with basic facts. Additionally, consider giving students some problems to solve before the game to provide them with more time to calculate each quotient.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

If there are students who need an additional challenge, encourage them to order the decimals on their bingo board from least to greatest.
