SAVE THE TURKEY is an engaging digital math review game with a Thanksgiving theme and addition (1st-2nd) multiplication (3rd) focus. Students will open a Google Form and be introduced Trina the Turkey. She needs the help of your class to avoid the dinner table this Thanksgiving!

Watch a video featuring this product here!

You (the teacher) have given the class a set amount of time to help Trina. The class must complete the challenges before the countdown runs out of time in order to win! The amount of time can be set by the teacher (30-45 minutes recommended, the teacher can add or subtract time as they see fit.) Students will move through four tasks to complete the challenge. All questions are written as story problems to engage students. This product contains specific versions to fit 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade math skills students begin the year with.

*Please note, 1st graders may struggle with the level/amount of reading in the story problems. The teacher may want to pair students or read the problems together for this age.

THREE versions of the product are included (one for 1st, one for 2nd, and one for 3rd!) The five challenges will cover the following skills:

1st Grade
Task 1: Addition (sums under 10)
Task 2: Addition (sums above 10, under 20)
Task 3: Place Value (identify hundreds, tens, and ones.)
Task 4: Word Puzzle (mixed addition/subtraction)

2nd Grade
Task 1: Double Digit Addition (no regrouping)
Task 2: Double Digit Addition with Regrouping
Task 3: Place Value (expanded form)
Task 4: Word Puzzle (mixed addition/subtraction)

3rd Grade
Task 1: Multiplication Facts (factors with 2 and 3)
Task 2: Multiplication Facts (6-9)
Task 3: Double Digit Addition with Regrouping
Task 4: Word Puzzle (mixed addition/subtraction)

This activity is great for both in-person and digital learners. Each learner will need a device (unless sharing with a partner) and may also want paper and pencil for the last challenge (decoding the password.) Teachers will need a basic knowledge of Google products and know how to operate Google Drive to share this Google Form (instructions on how to share/ideas for where to share the link are included in the product.)

This design of the form ONLY allows students to move to the next task once they have all the answers correct in their current task. This means no grading or checking for the teacher! Once the student has completed the entire challenge, the teacher knows they answered all questions correctly! Due to this design, students MUST enter answers with exact CASE and SPACING or the form will think their answer is incorrect (more info on this below.)

Here are additional things to note:

*The questions/images in this product are not editable, as they were not made in Google.

*This form will need to shared with students through some kind of learning platform, (such as Google Classroom, Clever, or Canvas) via student/parent emails, or the chat box of a video call session.

*This form is currently set to only allow EXACT right answers. It is CASE and SPACE sensitive, meaning It will NOT allow students to move to the next section if their answer is not exactly the same (unfortunately, there is not a way to program multiple right answers in a Google Form unless the form is designed as a quiz. This would allow students to move on regardless of if their answers were correct or not.)

*PLEASE tell your students about the CASE and SPACE design of this form to eliminate frustration.

*If you think the Case and Space design of the product might be troublesome, you CAN take it out! Simply go into editor mode and click the little x by each answer (photo shown in product.) Note that this will allow students to complete the form with incorrect answers.

*You CAN add or remove questions in editor mode as you see fit.

*You CANNOT re-sell or share this product with other teachers unless they have purchased the product or a license to share.

*The last task in the game requires students to transfer their number answers into letters using a key. My in-person 2nd graders liked the assistance of paper and pencil during this task to help make it easier. You may want to suggest this to your students.

*Teachers may want to provide a small class prize after students complete the challenge. This could be anything as simple as a virtual dance party, candy sent by mail or passed out in person, bookmark, coloring page, or homework pass. This is optional.


"The perfect resource for distance learning & in person learning. Students enjoyed this holiday themed challenge! Will be purchasing the other challenges as well!"


"My students do not all have Chrome books so we did this whole class on whiteboards and on the projector. It was still so much fun!"
