These hungry gators want some apples! Why does an alligator want apples? Look, we all have cravings now and then, but more importantly, when a hungry gator tells you that he wants 3 X 7 apples, you don't ask questions, you go get 21 apples!
This matching style game covers single digit multiplication facts on colorful double sided cards (See preview file and Thumbnails for details). Players take turns revealing one multiplication problem (a gator card) to see how many apples the alligator wants. Then the player selects one "apple" card to try to match the answer to the gator's multiplication problem. If the player gets a match, he or she gets to go again. After all matches have been found, the winner is the player who found the most apples for the hungry alligator.
Cards come in two decks:
*The green gators "Problem Cards" deck contains 81 single digit multiplication problems (numbers 1 - 9).
*The red apples "Solution Cards" deck contains 81 answer cards that match the problems from the green gators deck.
You are downloading a zip file that contains a .pdf of the game cards (both decks) and a .pdf of the game rules.
The game cards are centered both horizontally and vertically for easy double sided printing.
I have printed my set onto (8.5 X 11) sheets of card stock, but I have also printed them onto paper and laminated them. I generally print enough sets for my students to play in groups of 3 or 4.
Have Fun! Joseph Huston
