This activity is a fun way to engage students in applying their basic
understanding of double-digit multiplication. Below are a few examples of the type of problems that are represented in this packet:
12 x 5 = 60
22 x 7 = 154
31 x 3 = 93
This packet is designed after the card game called War.
War is a basic game of luck, which allows the students to have fun in a competitive setting but not take a loss too personally because it is really the luck of the draw. In the game War, 2 students compete by solving separate multiplication problems and then comparing their answers. Whichever student has the highest number for his/her answer wins the round. After 20 rounds, the students tally up their wins, and whoever has the most tallies wins the overall game.
There are 3 other ways these cards can be utilized:
1. As task cards. The 2 sets of 20 cards do not contain the same problems. Therefore, the 2 sets can be combined to make 1 set of 40. Individual students can work through the pack of 40 and then check their answers.
2. As a teaching tool for small groups. These cards are a great supplement for re-teaching and reinforcing multiplication methods.
3. As a homework review for students that have already been introduced to multiplication.
This product is made up of 24 pages that include:
• Teacher instructions for setting up and playing the game, War
• Student instructions for playing the game, War
• 2 sets of 20 task cards
• Student Record Sheet
• An answer key for each task card set
Before you purchase this produce, please take the time to download the free preview so that you can take a closer look at the format and style of the problems on each task card.
