Looking for a fun interactive teaching idea for multiplying numbers in equal groups? Well bingo! Look no further as Multiplication of Whole Numbers Puzzles, for CCSS 3.OA.1, will serve as an exciting lesson plan for 3rd grade elementary school classrooms. This is a great resource to incorporate into your unit as a guided math center rotation, review game exercise, small group work, morning work, remediation, intervention or rti. It can also be used as a quiz, drill, test, or assessment tool to help determine student mastery of the learning target. Whether a student is homeschooled or given this task as a homework assignment, kids will also love working on these for distance learning at home to study and improve their skills.

This puzzle set includes 22 colorful jigsaw puzzles, answer key, and an optional station instruction page with an example. These come as pdf printable sheets that can be printed on card stock and laminated for long-term use. As a suggestion, store them in a sealable gallon storage bag and place them in a foldable tub or bin for students to use throughout the year for enrichment when they finish early. Another idea, for a craft project, is students can glue the completed puzzles into a spiral notebook or journal as a model reference sheet. They can also be glued on a poster for displaying on a bulletin board or as a wall anchor chart.

It covers the multiplication strategy of creating equal groups of objects to represent the multiplication problem. By solving the multiplication expression and finding the matching picture model, students can sort, scoot and match the puzzle pieces to gain confidence in an important and sometimes challenging skill. Your 3rd graders will love to practice in the area of using the method of multiplication by grouping to learn multiplication facts on their journey to fluency with times tables!

I hope you download and enjoy this engaging hands-on manipulative activity with your students! So set those worksheets aside and give our puzzles a try!
