# Here is a collection of ideas for integrating multiplication facts with other subjects

Subject:

Math

4, 5, 6

Title – Just the Facts
Primary Subject – Math
Secondary Subjects – Multidisciplinary
Justification: Students often have a hard time remembering multiplication facts. This game provides opportunity to review these facts with any subject area.

Materials Needed:
Questions related to subject area
Two stacks of multiplication fact cards
Two calculators
Scratch paper
Two tables or desks
Two student chairs

How to Play the Game:
Divide the class into two teams. Each team needs a calculator person to verify the other team’s answers to the multiplication problems. Each team will have a fact station set up at a table or a desk.

Students will take turns drawing subject related questions from a pile. If the student answers the question correctly, s/he moves to the team’s fact station and completes a multiplication problem. If the question is answered incorrectly, the student goes to the end of his/her team’s line and waits for another turn.

When a student moves to his/her team’s fact station, s/he will attempt to complete a multiplication problem. If the student gets the correct product, s/he moves to the end of the opposing team’s line.

The first team to get all of its members to the opposite side wins the game.
