This two-player game is a fun way to practice multiplication facts! You'll use a pair of dice to determine the numbers you will multiply with. The product determines whether you've hit a single, double, triple, or home run! Help your third grader improve his confidence with multiplication by reviewing facts in this fun new way.
What You Need:
- Two dice (Make your own.)
- One Math Baseball game board (Print this out.)
- A place marker for each player (e.g. coins, beans, etc.)
What You Do:
- Determine team names and write them in the score sheet. Roll the dice to see who goes first.
- Players take turns going "up to bat" by rolling the two dice and multiplying the two numbers shown. If a player gives a correct answer, they may look for the product on the Hitting Chart. (It's at the bottom of your game board.) The chart will show where the players can move their marker to on the game board.
- Each player may continue their turn until they get 3 outs. An out is received by saying an incorrect answer or by "hitting" a low number. Home runs should be recorded with tallies.
- Play for 5 innings. Then add up the number of home runs to see which player's won the game!
- Change the numbers in the hitting chart.
- Change the operation to addition or subtraction.
