Common Core State Standard:
CCSS.Math.Content.3.OA.C.7 Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
You can print the baseballs back to back… it’s designed to match up perfectly. Just print pages 1-23 first. Next, take the baseball sheets and turn them face up and facing you in the paper tray. Now print out pages 24-37 (plain baseball backings). The backs of all baseballs will be printed. Then, just take each sheet to the paper cutter and cut each sheet into 12 square cards. Pages 38-40 are 3 optional recording sheets which can be laminated for use with erasable markers or copies in grayscale for use with pencil. Pages 41 & 42 are optional awards.
Divide players into 2 teams.
Each team has a token/game piece.
Place balls face down on pitcher’s mound.
First player picks one ball.
If the player solves the fact correctly, s/he tosses the baseball die or spins the baseball spinner. (die and spinner included; just fold and tape/glue) S/he may also record the fact on one of the optional recording sheets.
The player moves the team game piece according to what the die says:
1 base = a single
2 bases = a double
3 bases = a triple
4 bases = a homerun
Incorrect Answer = an out
Each time a run scores, students keep track on the scoreboard.
Note: To make the game progress more quickly, you can change the number of outs to 1 per inning rather than 3.
More Ways To Play
Game 1: Select the cards that are appropriate for your students. Place cards face down in a pile. Students roll a die to see how many cards they can pick. Students keep each card that they correctly solve. Optional recording sheets may be used as well. The game is over when all baseballs have been drawn. The winner is the student with the most baseballs.
Game 2: Select the facts that a group of students needs to practice. Students line up the baseballs as though they are on a path. This creates a “follow the path” type game. Each student has a game token. Students take turns rolling a number die, moving that number of spaces and solving the multiplication fact that is on the space where the student lands. Optional recording sheets may be used as students solve the facts.
Game 3: Select 10 pairs of facts with the same products (i.e. 5 x 8 and 4 x 10). Place those 20 cards face down in 4 rows of five. Students play Memory or Concentration, turning over 2 cards at a time and keeping them if they have the same product. The game is over when all cards are gone. The winner is the student with the most baseballs. Keep cards that belong together in individual baggies. Optional recording sheets may be used.
