This mini bundle of resources focuses on 2- and 3- digit multiplication using the traditional algorithm for multiplication, and is designed for students who are just being introduced to this procedure.
- a 30-slide interactive PowerPoint
- a craftivity
The PowerPoint is highly interactive. It begins with a multiplication story problem that involves 2 two-digit numbers. Next, the acronym "Many Zoos... Many Animals!" is presented to teach students the sequence: multiply, zero, multiply, add. It also includes a companion handout. Students can write on their handout, recording answers, as you progress through the PowerPoint.
After the introduction section, SEVERAL practice opportunities are presented. There are 6 problems that involve two digit factors, and 5 problems that involve a three-digit factor times a two digit factor. Ample support is provided in the form of arrows, and animated text boxes. (The PowerPoint is also fully animated, so that answers do not appear on the screen until the teacher has clicked the mouse.)
The craftivity, which includes four multiplication story problems, is an ideal follow-up activity, and the craftivity can be hung on a bulletin board or in the hallway- they create a fun display that shows passers-by exactly what you have been learning in your classroom.
**Please note: the PowerPoint cannot be edited due to the copyright requirements made by the contributing artists (clip art, font, backgrounds).
