Hi all!
Does anyone have any fun multiplication games that can be played with the whole class?

We often play Around the World, etc., but I'd like to find something different if possible.

Thanks a lot!

My 5th and 6th grade after-schoolers liked playing multiplication bingo. You could almost turn any game into a multiplication game.

I split up my multiplication flashcards among pairs of students and they play War. I also do a game called Last Man Standing where students all stand up (or sometimes I let them sit on their desks) and I quiz them w/flash cards individually. If they get one wrong w/in the allotted time, they have to sit down in their chair. If they get a second problem wrong, they have to sit on the floor. Last student(s) standing wins.

I have a couple:
Wac-a-Number
1) Draw a line down the middle of your white board and write different products on both sides (both sides need to be identical... so you can write on both sides numbers such as 4, 16, 27, 30, etc., or you can write all of the products to whatever they are working on. For example, if they are working on their 6's, then you can write all of its products)
2) Split your class into two groups. Call one student from each group and hand each of them a soft object (I use these blow up hammers)
3) Call out a problem and they each have to run up to their side of the board and "wac" the answer, the product.
4) first one to "wac" the right answer wins a point for the team.

This game can also be called Wac-A-Word and you can use it to review spelling, vocabulary, definitions, dates, anything!!

I don't know the name ??
1) Draw two large doughnuts on each side of the white board. Inside the hole write a number such as five. Around the inside of the doghnut draw enough lines to break it up into 12 sections and randomly write 1-12 inside of them.
2) Split class into two and pick two students to come up to the board.
3) When you say go, they have to multiply the number that is inside of the hole by the number in each sections. They write the answer on the outside of the doughnut. The first one to multiply all of the numbers wins a point for the team.

ETA: found doughnut game on Education World

Bowling
1. Line up 10 kids to stand in the formation of pins. Give all of them a few multiplication cards to hold.
2. Line up the rest of the kids in a long line.
3. The first "bowling pin" holds up a multiplication card. THe first kid in line has to answer it in 3 seconds.
4. If he/she gets the answer correct, the "bowling pin" student sits down.
5. That player goes through each "pin" aka student until they get one wrong. It's fun to see who can get a strike
