Zombie Attack! Times-Table Card Game
mediamnemonicsmediamnemonics

Zombie Attack! Times-Table Card Game

(0)
This simple zombie-themed card game has been developed to help make learning times-tables fun! The times-table facts have been divided into three sets of colour-coded cards based upon their level of difficulty. Students choose or are allocated their difficulty level and given a set time to try and destroy all 12 of the zombies in their set. They do this by giving the correct answer to the times-table sum shown on the card, causing the 'zombie' to be discarded. If they get it wrong, the zombie returns to the deck to be encountered again and again until it is destroyed - unless the time runs out! A simple, fun way to get students revising the times tables facts. Also, great for differentiation as the teacher can set the difficulty level and time. The 36 cards are provided on A4 sheets so will need printing back to back, or gluing together. An instruction sheet written for students is also provided. The 1 x, 2 x, 5 x, and 10 x tables are not included as the game is designed to improve recall of the more challenging time table facts.
