LEGO MULTIPLICATION GAME

 Here I share a game to multiply using LEGO. In the link you can find a PRINTABLE MULTIPLICATION LEGO GAME.

Lego-Multiplication-11-Edited-768x512

 

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
