This product includes 8 sets of matching/concentration games, each with a different theme.
Each set of cards represents a different multiplication & division group that students can progress through at their own rates. Cards can be used for a simple matching game or as a game of “Concentration” and can be played individually or with partners. To make a match, students pair a multiplication and a division card that both have the same “total.” For example, the 3x2 multiplication card is paired with the 6÷3 division card because they both have a total of 6. After students match up all the cards in a set, they can complete the accompanying worksheet. If the games are played during centers time, the worksheet serves as a record of students’ work and enables the teacher to check for accuracy at a later time.
These cards can provide an excellent opportunity to discuss the roles of groups, #s in groups, and totals in both multiplication and division. Playing and discussing these games together can help your students develop a better understanding of the relationship between multiplication and division, as well as aide them in mastering the multiplication and division facts within 100, both 3rd grade Common Core Standards.

1) Hawaiian Vacation Theme – x2/÷2
