Egg Carton Multiplication
September 20, 2006
I created a game for learning multiplication facts, using very inexpensive materials. I took two empty egg cartons and numbered each hole with a number from one to twelve with a permanent marker. Students take turns dropping a ping-pong ball into each carton and then multiplying the two numbers to get an answer. For each correct answer, the team receives a point. No other member can help a teammate with an answer. This game is a great kinesthetic and tactile activity, which all the students enjoy while they learn their multiplication facts to twelve.
