This lesson allows students to explore the concept of multiplication hands on. Kids will also come to understand why multiplication is important as well as how to solve multiplication problems using array models.
Lay the foundation for multiplication by introducing your second graders to the concepts of skip counting and repeated addition. This lesson can be used alongside Up, Up, and Array, or separately to reinforce these important skills.
This worksheet provides students with the opportunity to work with groups and explore arrays. Students will create sentence frames and repeated addition equations based on pictures before writing their own creative story problems.
Making mistakes helps us learn! Your students will flex their analytical muscles to pinpoint errors in multiplication problems using arrays. Use the lesson on its own or as support to Base Ten Arrays for Multi-Digit Multiplication.
