Kathleen and Mande' are happy to offer this CCSS aligned area model multiplication matching activity. This is a fun and engaging way for your students to practice identifying the correct area model for both 2x1-digit and 2x2-digit multiplication problems.

This matching set includes:
- Direction Sheet
- 2 sets of cards (Total of 37 matching pairs)
