Third Grade Math Activities: Tic-Tac-Toe Multiplication

What You Need:

  • 9 sheets of white paper
  • Black marker
  • Two players

What You Do:

  1. Let your child draw a standard, nine square tic-tac-toe grid on each of the nine sheets of white paper with the black marker.
  2. Then, help your child place each of the nine sheets of paper in a 3 x 3 square, with the tic tac toe grids facing up.
  3. Next, take over duties and write a random multiplication equation in each of the 81 spaces.
  4. Explain to the players that the rules are exactly like those of standard tic-tac-toe.
  5. Players take turns trying to solve the various problems in the grids.
  6. When players successfully solve a problem, they put either an X or an O in the square.
  7. Whoever gets tic-tac-toe on a given grid can turn the sheet over and mark it with a giant X or O.
  8. To win, a player must get three sheets in a row.
