This packet is a continuation of the free worksheet called "Multiplication Concept Worksheet / Martian Multiplication and More". In other words, this packet has the martian multiplication worksheets, a popular download, plus many more worksheets.
This packet includes 21 printable colored worksheets. The graphics consist of those that I have developed myself as well as pre-made pic art which I have been granted permission to use.
Cartoon-like and fun, these worksheets invite children to illustrate the multiplication concepts behind the 3,4,5,6,7,8,and 9 times tables. Since my graphics are simple and mostly made up of primary shapes, students who aren't very artistic need not be intimidated.
The purpose of these worksheets is to represent the math facts in some pictorial way for better concept understanding, and not to promote an art contest. Furthermore, each student's drawing is merely an "add on" to an image already provided in each example.
Each example requires the student to connect the pictorial to the abstract.The student must write the math fact that the pictures represent. Themes for each times table: martians(3x), cats (4x), turkeys(5x), nests with eggs(6x), apple trees(7x), flower boxes(8x), and candy bowls(9x). Worksheets could be printed in color or B&W. Suitable for grades 2-5, depending on student ability.
This is a great pre-requisite to memorizing the multiplication facts in the Color Coded Multiplication program!
