Are you ready for some football?
Do you need a fun way for your students to practice the skill of multiplying whole numbers by single-digit and two-digit whole numbers? How about a math activity perfect for those months during the football season? Try the simple game on this file.
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 a 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 (or roll dice) and move down the football field.
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 (or roll dice) and move down the football field.
This file contains:
●4 Super Bowl Shuffle game boards (with different orientation and details)
●2 recording sheets for students to record their answers to the various questions they will solve during the game (and for teachers to have answer documentation)
●2 recording sheet answer keys
●2 paper-clip spinners (minus the paper-clip)
●2 dice charts
●suggested procedures and management for both methods of play
●set of 16 multiplication question cards (with single-digit multipliers) and 16 multiplication answer cards
●set of 16 multiplication question cards (with two-digit multipliers) and 16 multiplication answer cards
●set of 32 blank question cards and 32 blank answer cards
Your students are certain to have a blast playing this game, all the while sharpening their ability to solve products of whole numbers.
