This game is an easy, fun way to practice multiplication facts 1×0 through 1×12, 2×0 through 2×12 and 3×0 through 3×12, as well as listening carefully and paying attention.
Print out the card decks and cut along the dotted lines. Print on card stock and laminate each deck for durability and long-term use.
How to play:
Ask the players to sit in a circle and pass out all of the cards, except the I am the starting and ending player card!. Players do not need to have the same number of cards.
Choose a player to go first and give them the I am the starting and ending player! Card. That player will go first and last.
The starting player begins the game by standing and reading their card aloud, and solving each equation as they read it.
Starting player stands up and reads their card: I have 3×3, which equals 9. Who has 3×4, which equals 12?
Player whose card says I have 3×4 stands up and reads their card: I have 3×4, which equals 12. Who has 3×5, which equals 15?
And so on. The game continues until all of the cards are read and will end when play returns to the starting player. The starting player should read only the I have portion of their card to end the game. Students must concentrate and listen carefully to keep the game moving.
