(5 minutes)
Multiplication Bingo

  • Explain to the students that they will be playing multiplication bingo, where they find the product of two numbers by adding groups of numbers together.
  • Ask a student to explain the rules of bingo. Student explanations should include that they need to get five answers in a row before calling bingo. Answers can be found vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. Make sure students touch upon the role of the free space as well.

  • Provide sentence stems to help students describe the game: "To play bingo, you have to... To win bingo, you have to..."
