We have done a banana split challenge in my third grade classroom for 2 years now, and the students continue to surprise me! 16 out of 18 of my third grade homeroom students passed ALL of their multiplication tables last year by answering with at least 90% accuracy (most much better) in 2 and 1/2 minutes or less! With each test passed, the students earn one part of a banana split! The order is designed so that all students can earn the bowl (0's and 1's), banana (2's), at least one scoop of ice cream (5's), and the right to eat their treat (10's). We culminate this activity with a banana split party!
This is an activity the kids love and look forward to all year!
