This Common Multiple Sorting Game
will build number sense and fact fluency in a fun and engaging way!
Each student is given a game mat and a corresponding deck of 16 number cards. Students place the numbers on a triple Venn diagram based on the numbers' multiples. Best of all, this product includes 14 versions
for unlimited practice
For example: If the game mat is looking for Multiples of 4, Multiples of 5, and Multiples of 6 (see product preview), 18 would fall in the multiples of 6 circle, 30 would fall in the overlap between multiples of 5 and multiples of 6, 27 would fall outside the Venn diagram because it is not a multiple of any of these numbers, 60 would fall in the center because it is a multiple of all 3 numbers.
By sorting numbers this way, students more deeply understand the relationship between factors and multiples. This prepares them for whole number multiplication and division, finding a common denominator when adding fractions, and for prime factorization in later grades.
