Multiplication games are also a great way to keep your students engaged and motivated in their multiplication learning. Here are some of the best multiplication games for your classroom:

## Multiplication Games: Bingo

This game is a great way to help your students learn multiplication facts. Print out multiplication bingo cards and have your students play in pairs or small groups. The first student to get five in a row wins.

You can add variations to the simple five-in-a-row rule. To win the game, students must get an X on the board, or two complete rows, etc. The possibilities are endless!

## Multiplication Games: War

This game is a fun way to review multiplication facts. Have your students play in pairs. Each student flips over a multiplication card, and the first student to shout out the correct answer gets the point. The student with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Students work in teams to answer questions and gain points. It’s a fun and engaging way to learn multiplication facts, use arrays, factors & products, missing numbers, and solve multiplication word problems!
