Rock Star Multiplication Musical Chairs is a fun way to review different multiplication facts. Chairs should be set up exactly the same as if the class was playing traditional musical chairs. The only difference is that every student will have a chair (normally in musical chairs there is one less chair then the number of students playing). Each number card is cut out and tapped to a chair, (these are the products). The equation cards are cut out and put into a hat or bucket.
As the music is playing, the students walk around the chairs. When the music stops every student will find a chair. Next, the teacher chooses an equation from the bucket and states, “The person sitting on the product of 8x4!” The students look at their card taped to their chair and if they are sitting on 32 they are out and would remove their chair. The process continues until there is only one student remaining.
A blank sheet of cards is attached so you can add more products and equations if you would like. I suggest laminating the cards as well!
