This activity allows for the use of colour as well as number pattern to aid memory recall of 6x table multiplication & division facts.
The feet or hearts on each love bug can be used to count the sum total of each part of the multiplication equation e.g. 3 bugs with 6 legs each so 3 lots of 6 (3 x 6) = 18 What is 54 divided by 6? - count how many bugs are laid out on the table.
For some children the association with different colours will aid their memory recall of these important facts as well as making them visibly notice the number pattern - e.g. all totals ending in 6 are on a blue bug.
These bugs can help brighten up your maths bulletin board or be used as manipulatives for certain children to build up their counting in sixes skills.
