This math activity is the perfect way to engage students, get them moving, and practice different ways to show multiplication: through problems, products, arrays, and fact triangles.
The Multiplication Monsters packet includes 24 cards, 5 student work pages and a corresponding answer key.
Each monster card features a unique monster and a multiplication problem, array, or fact family. Multiplication problems are from the 2-9 times tables.
Set these cards up around the class for an all-class scavenger hunt or use them in centers as flash cards. Students will find the matching monster on their work page and fill in the multiplication problem in its different forms as well as its product (answer).
Addresses the following 3rd Grade Common Core State Standards:
- CCSS.Math.Content.3.OA.A.1 Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each.
