Product Description
Rays of Arrays: An Introduction Unit

A Pack dedicated to array Activities and teaching arrays activities. Using and building arrays is a foundational skill that helps set students up for success for multiplication and division. Build that foundation with this teaching arrays unit. This arrays lesson plan pack has been created to build a strong understanding of arrays and their purpose in math. This unit is designed to work from the most simple concepts to the more complex, building each day. Perfect for 2nd or 3rd grade!

This 10 day unit starts in the concrete and focuses on students building and manipulating their own arrays. As students move through the unit, the shift then goes to the pictorial representations, then to abstract. Students have a full understanding of arrays once they start finding arrays within arrays. This is the perfect introduction to multiplication and division.

Here’s a peek at what’s in this unit!
