Monster Multiplication Match-Up (2-digit by 1-digit)

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 7 pages | Years: 2 - 6

A match-up activity to practise multiplying a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number.

Use this match-up activity with your students as a way to practice multiplying a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number.


1. Students shuffle the cards and place them face up in the middle of the playing area.
2. Students take turns solving the multiplication problems using a method of their choice.
3. Once they have calculated their answer, students find the corresponding answer card and place it with their problem card to make a pair.
4. When all of the matches have been made, students check their work using a calculator.

Ideas for Alternate Play

  • Set a limit to the number of times each method can be used.
  • Make the task a timed competition.
  • Use MAB blocks to represent each question.

Why not review some effective multi-digit multiplication strategies before playing the game?
