Play Cards and Teach Math

When kids play some of their favorite card games they are brushing up on all math-related skills. To create a twist on the card game War, add multiplication into the picture. First, distribute cards evenly to both players. Those in the game cannot look at the cards or shuffle them around. At the count of three, both players lay down a card at the same time. The first person to shout out the product of both cards wins the cards. The player with the most cards at the end of the session or has all of the cards is the winner.
