I have a weekly mathematics club for fourth and fifth grade students in my
school.  We explore mathematics in a variety of ways.  I try to select
activities that will help these students experience some of the mathematical
strands more concretely than they might in their regular classrooms.  Some of
the activities we did last year involved using tangrams and pattern blocks to
explore similar figures, and creating patterns.

Here are a few sources you might investigate for ideas:

The Family Math Book (published by EQUALS at the Lawrence Hall of Science,
University of California, Berkeley, California)

for more information on this book

Investigations in Number, Data, and Space (TERC)

Math Trailblazers (University of Illinois at Chicago)

Everyday Mathematics (University of Chicago)

There is a great card game out called SET.  It requires players to think about
similarities and differences in order to form sets of cards.

I also play The Logical Journey of the Zoombini, by Broderbund.  The teacher's
edition has classroom activities that can be used without the computer.
