This product allows students to construct models of multiplication using draggable pieces. Each slide features a background related to the theme of building a town with arrays. Students will have the choice to select the amount of items and drag them to the background for arranging. Each slide features a place for students to record their multiplication equations. Instructions and Google Link to the Slide show is in the PDF. You will be able to use and reuse this product without any manipulatives to clean up or papers to hand out. If your students play on IPADS or Smartphones the draggable space to move objects will be automatic.

Meet the Standards for Mathematics Practice and Common Core Math Standards of Modeling with Mathematics with this product. You can easily set the parameters of the arrays based on students ability. Students who need more challenge can create complex equations whereas students who struggle with addition can have a visual cue for prompting. This product will help reinforce the connection between addition and multiplication. This is product is similar to counting collections.

Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
