Here I share a game to multiply using LEGO. In the link you can find a PRINTABLE MULTIPLICATION LEGO GAME.
Here’s how the game works:
Roll the dice! The first roll tells you how many towers to build. The second roll tells you how many bricks to put in each tower.
This is a great way to introduce multiplication. If you have 4 towers with 6 bricks in each tower, then you have 4 groups of 6. Four 6’s equals 24, or 4 x 6 = 24.
There are twelve tower spaces on the printable mat, and if you use a 12-sided math dice, you can cover all of the multiplication facts through the 12’s. Or roll two 6-sided dice. For beginners, I would recommend using just one 6-sided dice.
In the pictures you can see my year two students fully engaged in the game
