This game is an ideal way for 3rd graders to practice multiplying by multiples of ten, and an excellent review for 4th graders. Throughout the game students will practice multiplication and place value skills.
I've included 2 game boards for differentiation. One uses greater numbers than the other.
On each turn, students roll a dice to fill in a missing factor and complete a multiplication problem that already has a multiple of ten as one factor. Students use a provided multiplication chart to help them, and they write their product in a place value chart. The game reinforces that 40 x 3 is equal to 12 tens, or 1 hundred and 2 tens.
Even the scoring system in this game requires students to use place value concepts!
All you need is dice and the provided game boards, and you're all set for a math class full of fun and learning! This game can be played over and over again all year.
I hope your students enjoy this game as much as mine do!
