To play multiplication facts math baseball, the first person will roll the dice and multiply the 2 numbers together.
Follow the directions on the game board.
If it’s an “out,” mark it on the paper. (We put ours in a dry erase pocket so we can use the game over and over again.)
If it’s a “single,” move one of your pennies to first base. For a “double,” move it to second base; for a “triple,” place it on third. If you roll a “home run,” make a mark on the paper to record the run.
Just like in real baseball, keep your runners (pennies) on the bases and move them around with each new successful hit.
After three outs, it is the second player’s turn.
After 3 innings, add up each team’s runs to see who wins.
For extra fun, let your child use miniature figures like these to play the game.
