### Description

Engage your students in practicing two, three, and four step multiplication using area and scale. These challenges are designed to enrich and extend multiplication skills as students explore the colonization of the Moon. It pairs well with a space unit.

Included in this activity are:
- 4 challenges related to area.
- 4 blank lunar surface grids for additional activities.
- A full page lunar writing template with area to show work.
- A half-page lunar writing template with area to show work.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation “add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2” as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × (18932 + 921) is three times as large as 18932 + 921, without having to calculate the indicated sum or product.
Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
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.
Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
