Are you looking for a way for your students to easily create their own multiplying decimals models? With this interactive Google Slides resource, your students can create their own digital models for multiplying decimals by whole numbers. My students prefer this activity over coloring paper models.

Teach conceptually with digital manipulatives!

There are 20 slides containing digital manipulatives giving your students hands-on experience with multiplying decimals. Students will create their own multiplying decimals by whole numbers models by dragging and resizing color tiles to match the equation given.

Never worry about having enough materials!

  • Your students will have exactly what they need to complete the multiplying decimals activity delivered to them in the Google Slides. 
  • You don’t have to distribute, organize, or store manipulatives. 
  • No waiting in line to make copies!

For each multiplying decimals problem students will:

  • View decimal multiplication as equal groups
  • Digitally color the model to represent the equation by dragging and resizing the color tiles
  • Write a repeated addition equation to match the model

Save 30% by getting all of my 5th grade Google Slides activities in one bundle!

What teachers are saying about this multiplying decimals by whole numbers activity…

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This was INCREDIBLY helpful for my students and me to teach multiplying decimals! I wish I had more time to practice with them!” - Caroline P

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This resource was excellent to use to show modeling and the standard algorithm for multiplying decimals by whole numbers. I used some of the slides for a class demonstration. I then assigned the rest of the slides to my students as an in-class assignment and they entered their answers in Canvas. It worked perfectly.” - Kara B

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Loved the ability to have a resource that allowed my students to manipulate pieces to show their thinking. It was a great piece to help them see what was happening when they multiplied decimals.” - Kaitlyn D

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  “My students loved this! I’ll use this each year when teaching this skill.” - Samantha D

You will need a free Google account to access these files.
