Children encounter multiplication, fractions, and geometric measurement for the very first time in the 3rd grade math curriculum. Our task as teachers is to help our students develop a strong foundation in each of these key areas. The internet is full of lesson plans, games, and activities but how do you find the best teaching resources? Let’s begin with Math Playground where you’ll find an abundance of 3rd grade math games to support and enrich your curriculum.

Thinking Blocks is the visual, interactive way to solve math word problems. Students build models with colorful blocks and identify known and unknown quantities. The models are a powerful way to organize information and simplify the problem solving process.

Did you know that Math Playground began nearly 20 years ago in an after school math club? My students loved learning with math games and wanted to keep playing at home. That's how Math Playground came to be. Now children everywhere can explore multiplication, fractions, geometry and more with our fun and unique math games.
