This lesson is set up for students to review multiplying by one digit: multiplying by tens and hundreds, estimating, expanded algorithm, and standard algorithm multiplication of 1-digit by 2, 3, and 4 digit numbers. Students may complete the activity on their own or in a small group. Once students complete the math problems, they will have a physical task for each country-- running in place, jumping jacks, Irish jig, etc.. When the math problems and task are complete students may move to the next country. Students complete the “Amazing Math Race” once they take two (very careful) laps around the classroom. This activity is set up to review the concepts, but to also get the kids moving.
Goes with EnVision Math Common Core Topics 5 & 6 (4th Grade)
