These puzzles are a great way to practice multiplication word problems. These 24 puzzles align with the VA SOLs for multiplication word problems. They also include an area (array) model or a set models for each problem to practice reading models as well. Each puzzle has three pieces to connect. Print out the puzzles, laminate them, cut them apart and they are ready to use. These make a great center! By adding numbers or colors to the back of the puzzle pieces, it can even become a self-assessment center as well. I hope your students enjoy these puzzles as much as mine did!
