PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


A Valentine's Day activity for students learning multiplication with two or three digit factors.

Objective: This activity tests students on subtracting fractions.

Standard: This puzzle is aligned with the following fourth grade common core standard:


-CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NBT.B.5
- Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number and multiply two two digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations, illustrate and explain the calculation using equations, rectangular and/or area models


To complete the puzzle the students must match up the multiplication problem with its product.

Five versions of the puzzle are included, each with a varying number of Valentine's Day graphics. As the number of graphics increases, so does the difficulty allowing for differentiation amongst ability groups. The puzzles vary in the graphics and not the multiplication problems. View the preview file, which allows you to see half of the puzzles to get a feel for how they work.

Directions: Print out the gameboard on cardstock and have it laminated . Cut out the sixteen pieces and pass them out to individual students or to a group of students. The students must match up the problem with the sum or difference to complete the 4 x 4 Grid.

What has been successful for us is to give points for correctly completing the puzzle, and extra credit points for the first few groups that finish. The Roman numerals are there so that you can quickly check for accuracy.
