Activity 3 – Multiplication Cards

Choose your times table/s.

Record times table questions on cards. I.e. if you wanted to do 3 times 4 create a card with 3 and 4 on.

Get a piece of paper (or use the template provided) to create 3 columns and create an X sign to go in the middle column.





Put your cards face down. I.e. 3 goes to the left of the X and the 4 goes to the right of the X. 

Each player turns two cards (one from each side of the X) and multiplies them together.

First person to shout out the answer wins the pair.

The player with the most cards wins.
