Gone Fishing is designed to introduce the concept of multiplication through repeated addition. This game is appropriate for students as young as K and could be used as either an independent center activity or as enrichment. For older elementary students, this could serve as a review or as remediation.
I have also used this activity during math instruction with interactive notebooks.
There are two recording sheets—one which addresses repeated addition for K-2 and one that links repeated addition to multiplication for 3-5).
