Your students will love this highly interactive and engaging Area Model Multiplication lesson!
This lesson can stand alone, or be used in conjunction with my Area Model Multiplication YouTube instructional video! I created both the lesson plan and video to work hand-in-hand to support student engagement, knowledge, and achievement!
The lesson plan is aligned with the Common Core State Standards and the Ontario Curriculum Expectations. By the end of the lesson, students will:
1. Demonstrate that they are reflecting on and monitoring their thinking to help clarify their understanding;
2. Solve problems involving the multiplication of multi-digit whole numbers using an area model;
3. Apply area model multiplication to a variety of situations including complex, multi-step problem-solving situations, explorations, and investigations.
