PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you need a fun way for your students to practice the skill (4.NBT.B.5) of multiplying by one-digit and two-digit whole numbers? How about a St. Patrick’s Day-inspired math activity or learning center perfect for the month of March? Try the simple game on this file. Just print and play!

Three different sets of recording sheets and game cards are included on this file. I prefer to use the first set as an introductory, whole-class activity, and then use the second and third sets as a learning center for the remainder of the season or month.

There are two methods of play; solely dependent upon the amount of time you have available in preparation of this fun activity. One method involves game cards, where one side of a paper card has an multiplication problem, and the other side will have the correct product. Students play by solving the problems that are face-up on a card, record their answers on a recording sheet, self-check the answer on the back, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move along the trail of shamrocks.

The second method of play eliminates the use of the game cards, thus reducing the overall preparation time. Students use a single die to determine problems to solve on their recording sheets, independently self-check the answer with the corresponding answer key, and if he or she is correct, they get to spin a paper-clip spinner and move along the trail of shamrocks.

This file contains:

●suggested procedures and management for both methods of play (whole-class and learning center)

●2 Shamrock Shenanigans game boards… they differ only in background colors.

●2 paper-clip spinners with 6 and 8 outcomes

●3 multiplying by one-digit numbers recording sheets with corresponding answer keys for the students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)

●3 multiplying by two-digit numbers recording sheets with corresponding answer keys for the students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)

●3 sets of 16 multiplying by one-digit numbers question cards and 16 corresponding answer cards

●3 sets of 16 multiplying by two-digit numbers question cards and 16 corresponding answer cards

●1 set of blank recording sheets and answer keys

●1 set of 32 blank question cards and 32 blank answer cards

Your students are certain to have a fantastic time playing this game, all the while sharpening their ability to solve products of whole numbers multiplied by one-digit and two-digit numbers.

Enjoy!
