This games requires game pawns. Students spin one of two provided spinners and then find a multiple of the number spun. Once a student reaches the final space, that player wins.
The game comes with two gameboards and two spinners. Gameboard A is based on the multiples 3, 5, and 8, with the spinner featuring those digits as the factors. The other gameboard and spinner use the digits 4, 6, and 9 as the factors, with the board featuring multiples of those digits.
The provided recording sheet has students to write the numbers landed on and spun, practicing how to use the word "multiple" to describe the relationship between the numbers.
