This pack contains anchor charts, worksheets, printables, task cards, and activities for learning about multiples, factors, primes and composites.
Most of the activities require students to come up with their own definitions and create their own meaning by examining examples which is far more meaningful than just being fed the information. Some activities are already differentiated, and others can be differentiated easily by providing the included list of factors for the numbers 1 - 100 (great for students to keep in their interactive math notebooks as a reference for those still gaining confidence with factors). The task cards provided are specifically for prime factorization, but there are activities for:
Defining and Listing Multiples
Finding the Least Common Multiple
Defining and Listing Factors
Finding the Greatest Common Factor
Defining Prime and Composite Numbers
Identifying Numbers as Prime or Composite Requiring Proof by Listing Factors
Prime Factorization Using Factor Trees
The "anchor charts" can be blown up as posters or given as handouts for student reference. These are great to anchor the lesson!
Students stay engaged through fun characters such as the factor ninja, the multiple monster, and the prime and composite sheep.
Enjoy 25 useable pages (all pages except the cover page are black and white making them easy to print).
