Multiplication Tables : Multiplication Table Fun

This activity can also be easily done by parents at home with their kids using simple materials.

- Take an ice tray and use a pen or marker to write numbers from 1 to 12 on each segment.
- Get two marbles or beans and place them inside the ice tray..
- Shake the tray gently so that the marbles move around.
- Stop and observe where the marbles have landed.
- Ask the kids to write a multiplication number sentence based on the numbers where the marbles landed. For example, if one marble is in the segment number 3 and the other in segment number 4, the number sentence could be 3 x 4.
- Encourage the kids to write out the multiplication sentence using the numbers they observed.
