Product Description
This 8-page Complete Lesson Packet uses an area model, or box model, to teach multiplication. This is an excellent way to build conceptual understanding that the standard algorithm for multiplication does not provide. For the past four years, I have used only area models when teaching multiplication (no standard algorithm) and I have seen a HUGE improvement in accuracy and number sense.

This no-prep lesson focuses on solving 3 x 1 and 4 x 1 digit multiplication problems in real-life situations. Each word problem asks students to solve specific steps to solve the problem in a strategic way that will set them up for success when they also have to choose an operation

Each word problem asks students to:
✓Estimate the Product (round each number to the greatest place and multiply)
✓Model or Visualize (draw a picture of what is happening)
✓Solve (using an area model or box model)
✓Sentence (write the answer in a complete sentence to show you understand it in context)

This 8-page lesson packet includes:
→Instructional Guide
→Partner Practice
→3-page Independent Practice
→Challenge Page for Early Finishers
→Exit Quiz

This lesson is perfect for 4th grade. I've used it for 5th grade for many years now to help introduce area models before we got to 2 x 2, 2 x 3, and 3 x 3 digit multiplication.
