## Make Your Way Through the Mazes – Odd and Even Numbers

This collection of three worksheet-style game boards is the perfect addition to your Odd and Even lesson plans.

Your students will love working through the mazes. They will need to go from a starting point to different endpoints, with obstacles along the way. To move around the maze, they need to roll two dice and add the numbers together; if the answer is an even number, they can move to the next even number on the board; if it is an odd number, they move to the next odd number on the board.

This resource can be used in a range of different ways, such as:

• As an individual activity stuck in their workbook, they can colour the path they take as well as write down the sums they create with their two die.
• A game board that can be used time and time again. Print the resource on coloured paper and laminate it. In pairs, students take turns moving along the maze and use counters to show their spots. The first to get to the finish is the winner!

## Odd and Even Addition Properties

Through this activity, students can discuss and demonstrate their knowledge of odd and even numbers when they are added together – what the likely results will be of a sum – either odd or even. Here are the rules you can teach them beforehand:

1. Addition of Even Numbers – When you add two even numbers together, the result is always an even number. For example: 2 (even) + 4 (even) = 6 (even)
2. Addition of Odd Numbers When you add two numbers together, the result is always an even number. For example: 3 (odd) + 5 (odd) = 8 (even)
3. Addition of an Even and an Odd Number – When you add an even number and an odd number together, the result is always an odd number. For example: 2 (even) + 3 (odd) = 5 (odd)
