### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

**Be sure to check out our 5th (Fifth) Grade Common Core Activities Bundle, which now has over 50 of our Fifth Grade Common Core Math Activities including sorts, puzzles, worksheets, and seasonal activities! (Some product listings are below)**

Objective: Test students multiplication fluency.

Standard:
-CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NBT.B.5: Fluently multiply multi-digit whole number using the standard algorithm.

Directions:
One option is to pass out the scrambled version of the puzzle to students and have them cut out the pieces on their own. Another option is to print out the puzzles, have them laminated, and cut out the pieces prior to giving to students. This option allows you to reuse the puzzle pieces. Once passed out, the students must match up the multiplication problem with its product. When correctly completed they will form a 4 x 4 grid. Roman numerals are included on the pieces so that the teacher can quickly check for accuracy.

Two versions of the puzzle are included. One does not have problems or answers around the edges making it easier to solve. The second version contains the same problems but has numbers and problems around the edge, some that repeat from the middle. This is more difficult but allows for differentiation amongst ability
groups.

We have found these puzzles to be a great tool in our classrooms, and have created them for a variety of topics. Students don’t realize that they are solving up to 24 problems when completing them. 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.
