Multiplication Array War Grid Game

You can help your students practice area skill by calculating length and width, multiplication and multiplication facts with a multiplication grid game.

Just print the recording sheet and you have instant engaging activity.

Material required:
- two dice,
- two different color pencils and
- a recording sheet

Each player takes it in turn to roll the two dice, using the numbers that they rolled to draw the perimeter of a rectangle or square. They can write the area in the middle of the shape. If they roll a 2 and a 3, they'll draw a box that is 2x3 and write 2x3 inside of it. 

If a player cannot create an array because there is no space left, they lose a turn. Or you could have the first person who can’t color in their roll be the loser.

Your GOAL is to get as many arrays in your color as you can. 

Kids can play the game themselves and see how many arrays they can draw in their box without any overlap.


To get arrays larger than 6x6, you can use dice with more than six faces or playing cards.
