This is a hands on resource for teaching multiplication of decimals and whole numbers to your students. It will get your students thinking about multiplication and understanding it at a deeper level.
This bundle includes the following:
-Area Model Multiplication Work Mat
-Area Model Multiplication Practice Matching Game
-Hot Potato Partner Worksheets for decimals and whole numbers
The structure "hot potato" is used to encourage equal participation within partner work. We use erasable colored pencils; each partner has a different color. Then they pass the paper back and fourth, every step, within EACH problem. Have students roll a dice to fill in the numbers, or fill them in before you copy. We use this resource multiple times within our unit, so it is used as a template. You should print, and then copy DOUBLE SIDED when using this resource, if you want to use both pages.
