Beginning multiplication by investigating equal groups and playing around with array models.
In this 46 page resource, your students will skip count using puzzles. While they skip count, they will investigate equal groups with a math center that has them take equal groups and have them relate it to repeated addition and finally write a multiplication word problem which they solve.
They will also have a repeated addition word problem where they draw equal groups and finally put it in an array model. They will also complete another multiplication math center that has them take everyday objects and write the size of the group and the number of the group to understand multiplication and meaning of factors.
I have also included 4 exit slips. An interactive notebook for the common core standards 3.OA.A.1 and 3.OA.A.3 which are covered in this multiplication math resource.
3 Math Centers (including the skip counting math center)
