Have students practice solving multiplication problems using four multiplication strategies with this fun back to school math game! Students attempt to fill up their book bag with the school supplies they need from their supply list before any other player. The first player to do so wins the game!
This back to school themed game is used to help students practice learning how to solve multiplication equations using repeated addition, drawing arrays, using equal groups, and by skip counting in a fun way during math class! It's a great way to practice math in the fall during the back to school season!
I use this game quite frequently at the end of the school year and the beginning of the school year to review a variety of skills. It's great in math centers, with partners, or for a group of up to four students.
School Supply Problems : How to Play
When playing, kids try to be the first person to get every item on their school supply list! Students answer a game card with a math equation on it. If they get it correct, they close their eyes and take a school supply out of the shopping cart. The school supply may be something they need or it not help them at all! It's all about the luck of the draw and that's what makes the game so exciting! The first person to find all items on their supply list wins!
There are 24 game cards included and 12 chance cards. I play with double the amount of chance cards (2 sets of 12) so I have included two sets for you for easy printing.
