Circle Zoom: A whole class circle activity, as you go around the circle students have to say the right number.
Maths Relay: Maths, but it’s a race!

Target: A 2 player dice game. Students choose a target number to get to and roll two dice. Using any maths operation, they try to be the first to reach the target number.
Four in a Row: A popular two-player game which allows students to practice their basic multiplication facts. Students must connect 4 numbers in a row – a bit like connect four.

Time Machines: This game is a bit like snakes and ladders but instead uses time machines and black holes to race through time. When students land on one of these squares they must answer a basic fact question to find out how far they move.
Race to the Moon: This is a printable board game which can be played with 2-5 students. Students roll a die to move around the board answering maths questions as they go.
