Divisibility lesson idea?

I'm a student teacher in 5th grade and I'm teaching a lesson on divisibility next week. I'm having trouble coming up with a hands on activity for this topic. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hope you're still up! Here is one idea. There is a fabulous resource from NCDPI that I need to find a link for and I will post it as soon as I find it.


I suggest using marbles or even "rock" shapes cut from paper for this activity. Also, make sure to include a writing or brainstorming session afterward in groups, partners, or the whole class to process stratgies used to play.

I just found the link for the all of the lesson materials.

Divisibility Bingo

Use a blank Bingo board and let the kids write 2,3, or 4 digit numbers in each square. Then, call out "divisible by 3" or whatever and the kids can mark all numbers that are divisible by that call. The first one to Bingo gets a small prize. We sometimes combine some geometry and do intersecting lines, or angles for the Bingo.

Dr. Suess fan, thank you for your suggestions. I was really looking for anything that anyone could suggest. Thank you! The bingo idea is a neat idea too. I am definitely going to try and use this idea when we start geometry. Thank you!!
