By – Vernice L. Meadows
Primary Subject – Math
Secondary Subjects – Multidisciplinary
Grade Level – 4-6
Justification: Students often have a hard time remembering multiplication facts. This game provides opportunity to review these facts with any subject area.
Questions related to subject area
Two stacks of multiplication fact cards
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.
