A great way to practise multiplication.
Shoot the basketball at the basket that contains the correct answer to the multiplication question. But hurry! Players only have twenty seconds to aim for the highest score they can attain! And if their aim isn’t true, the ball can bounce right out of the basket and miss!
Given basketball’s already competitive nature, it is not difficult to create a group game out of this by separating the class into teams, with each team aiming to get the highest score possible within twenty seconds. They can even create their own team names, for added creativity and fun! However, the game also keeps track of the top five highest points of all the players who had played it within the day. Are the teams good enough to defeat the highest score of the day, made by someone who can possibly be across the country, or even the ocean? Who will be crowned as basketball champions of the day? Let’s find out!

Allow your students to reveal the hidden picture by matching the equations to the side with the boxes containing their corresponding answer. But beware, for they should also take note that they should follow a certain operational order when performing their calculations; otherwise, they would not be able to match the boxes correctly!
There are a number of ways to convert this into a team game. The teacher can opt to time each group to see how long it would take for them to reveal the mystery picture – the group with the fastest time wins. Alternatively, each group could be given a set time to reveal as many hidden pictures as they can, with the team revealing the most winning the game. Another possible option is that the groups could take turns in revealing a box and then attempting to guess what is hidden underneath; the group that makes the first correct guess wins.
