Thank you for your interest in the Popsicle Multiplication Puzzles. This activity is a fun and engaging way to practice multiplication fact fluency.
Included in this packet you will find forty-five popsicle multiplication puzzles. There are four parts to each puzzle: top, middle, bottom, and popsicle stick. The top piece contains the multiplicand. The middle piece contains a multiplication symbol. The bottom piece contains the multiplier. The popsicle stick contains the product.
Students will assemble one top, middle, bottom, and stick to create a completed popsicle. When completed correctly, each popsicle will contain a true multiplication fact.
To prepare the puzzles for use, you'll need to cut around the lines surrounding the picture. Then, cut along the lines that cut the popsicle into four parts.
Since each piece of the puzzle will be handled frequently, I recommend printing on cardstock for added durability. The pieces easily fit into a plastic baggie or envelope for storage.
These puzzles are sure to be a huge hit in your classroom. They're a fun and engaging tool that can really help your students to master their multiplication facts. These puzzles work well during math centers and are also great to use with students who finish early. They also make great little gifts to send home with your students.
Thank you again for your purchase of the Popsicle Multiplication Puzzles. hope that you love it as much as I do.
