This is a great independent or small group math center:
Materials: Double Digit Multiplication Roll/Pick a Stick worksheet, pencil, and two dice (6 sided) or popsicle sticks with numbers 0-9 written on each in a cup
The student will roll the 2 dice together and create a number in the "first roll" box they will then roll the two dice again and create a number in the "second roll" box. OR the other option of pick a stick where students will pick two sticks from a cup with digits 0-9 on and build and number and then pick two more sticks. Students will then solve the multiplication problem with an area model and with the standard algorithm. **There is a model problem in the first box
I printed the worksheets out double sided and put into a file folder for a great and low prep center.
