Chant the 3 times table, raising a finger for each multiple.


Make number cards 0 -12.

Shuffle the set of card and place them face down.  

Turn one card over.

On a bead number line, draw on hops of 3.

Count the number of hops that match the card turned over, e.g. 6 - do 6 hops and see where you land.

Now record this as a calculation e.g. 6 x 3 = 18 (the no. you land on)  then record the others in the same family.

                                                                 3 x 6 = 18

Next write the corresponding divisions, e.g. 18 ÷ 3 = 6 and 18 ÷ 6 = 3 .

When you have used all their cards, add together the digits of each multiple of 3 and discuss what they notice.
