Moose! is a simple multiplication game that can be used to practice multiplication facts. There are five rounds per game (M, O, O, S, and E).
My game rules (but feel free to make your own!):
*All students begin the game standing. I roll two dice, one of which has a picture of a moose on it.
*Students multiply the two figures on the dice together and write their work/answer in the first round's column (M).
*The dice are then rolled again, and students repeat the process of multiplying, writing down their work and answer. The more times the dice are rolled per round, the more products students will have to add up at the end of the round to total their final round score.
*Students can choose to sit down after the dice is rolled, because if the picture of the moose is rolled, all the products the students calculated are wiped out.
*Rolling a moose ends the round.
*Students standing when a moose is rolled end that round with a score of 0, to be place in round M in the last column of the sheet.
*Students who sat down before a moose was rolled can add up all their products to calculate the final score of that round, to be place in round M in the last column of the sheet.
*The game continues to the next round (O), and all students stand back up to participate.
*For older students, one or both dice can be substituted with dice having more than six sides.
