Students can use double and single dice to practice multiplying using arrays or area models: 2 x 1; 3 x 1; and 4 x 1. Students sheets are differentiated so that the area model is either provided for the student already or the student has blank work space to draw the area model or array him/herself.
A double dice can be used for the 2, 3, and 4 digit numbers. Single dice can also be used if your classroom does not have access to double dice.
This activity is great for independent practice, partner work, math centers, or small group practice.
