## Reflection: Joy Multiplication War (Day 1) - Section 2: Activity

My students really enjoy a challenge or a competition, so that’s why I turned this into a multiplication war game. The same outcome could be achieved without the competition aspect, where students each draw a card off of a stack and then record and solve the problem. Playing cards and dice are really useful tools for multiplication games and I tend to use them often.
