IT’S winter in the playground and time for a snowball fight!
However, to come out top as the snowballs fly, you’ll need to use your math skill to make the most of your shots.
Each time you get to throw a snowball, a multiplication puzzle will be asked. You have five fellow snowballers to aim for, but you will need to target the one hiding behind the mound of snow with the right answer. Pick the right target and bullseye! Pick the wrong target and they’ll splat you with their snowball first. Too many wrong answers and you’ll be back indoors shivering with a cold!
At the start of the game, you can choose which number you are testing, from 1 to 12, or groups from 0-5, 2-9 or 3-12. This makes it a useful interactive exercise for first to third graders.
See if you can come out on top as the fastest snowballer in the West!
