Here are Year 6 using a deck of cards to play times tables games. 🙂
‘Fast Factors’ – person 1 starts a timer, then holds up 2 cards from the deck. Person 2 multiplies the numbers on the cards. Once they have a correct answer, they keep those cards. Person 1 stops the clock once the whole deck has been used. The winner is the person who solves the questions in the fastest time.
‘Factors on the forehead’ – play in 3s. Two people pick a card from the deck and place it against their forehead (without looking at it), so that the value of the card can be seen by the other players. The third person then multiplies the two cards. The players with cards on their foreheads have to work out the value of their own card. The person who is the fastest, keeps both of the cards. The winner is the person with the most cards at the end.
