Procedure
Let's lay all the cards - Multiplication game is an enjoyable way to spend time with your students or child while strengthening their math skills.

Steps:

  1. If real playing cards are not available, download and print the Fruits Playing Card (I recommend cardboard)
  2. Cut the Fruits Playing Card.
  3. Download the Let's lay all the cards- Multiplication Activity sheet 1, Activity Sheet 2 and Activity Sheet 3
  4. Ask the students to find a partner.
  5. Set up the timer, and play the game for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Ask the students to shuffle the deck of cards and then distribute them evenly with the number face down. So for 2 players, each player should have 26 cards.
  7. Each player should keep their cards in a stack. Assign picture cards, such as jacks, queens, and kings, a value of 10. For example Jack -11, Queen -12 and King -13
  8. Each player turns two cards face up, reads the number, and multiply them. The equation will then be placed in the Activity sheet.
  9. If player A, draws 8 and 5, they should say, "8 x 5 = 40." Then if player B, draw 3 and 4, then the number sentence is "3 x 4 = 12." Because the product of player A is larger, he wins the four cards and puts them at the bottom of his pile.
  10. Just in case the players come out with the same product, you break the tie by letting them show who has the highest card. For example, Player A, has 4 x 4 = 16 and Player B, 2 x 8 =16, then Player B wins the 4 cards because he has the highest value of card "8".
  11. When the timer goes off, each player should count their cards.
  12. The player with the most cards wins. If one player runs out of cards before time is up, then the other player wins.
  13. In the other stages of the game, they will still draw 2 cards and write the number on the activity sheet. But afterward, they have to multiply it with another predetermined number on the activity sheet.
