## Is it Odd or Even? Why?

Use this set of odd and even number task cards to encourage your students to identify odd or even numbers. The following activities are included in this set of task cards:

• Is the number 18 an odd or even number? How do you know? – A collection of this type of question with students explaining how they know a number is odd or even.
• Odd or Even? Tasks – provided with a three-digit number – students need to identify if it is odd or even.
• List 3 even numbers less than 10 – a collection of these problem-solving type questions that will have students showing their knowledge and understanding of patterns in odd and even numbers.

## More Odd and Even Activities

In addition to individual student work time, use these task cards in a variety of other ways, including:

🛴 Scoot Activity

Place the cards around the room in numerical order and give each student a recording sheet. Assign students or pairs to a starting point card. Give students time to review the card and record their answers in the corresponding space on their paper. Students will rotate to the next card when you say, “SCOOT!” Continue in this manner until students return to their starting point.

👋 Exit Ticket

Use these cards as a formative assessment after your lesson. Pick a random assortment of cards and project them on the board for the whole class to see. Students can record their answers on a sheet of paper, sticky note or notebook.

## Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Print on cardboard for added durability and longevity. Place all pieces in a folder or large envelope for easy access.

To keep the task cards out of pockets or under desks, punch a hole in the corner of each to place them on a binder ring.

Sustainability Tip: Print a few recording sheets on cardboard and slip them into write-and-wipe sleeves. Students can record their answers with a whiteboard marker, then erase and reuse them.
