Using multiple strategies to find and show the answer helps students to visualize and understand how and why multiplication works. All the problems in this set have products of 50 or less.

Yee Haw! Your cowfolk will LOVE rounding up the herd in this fast-paced partner game. The objective? To be the first team to correctly find and solve 15 rectangle related problems hidden around the classroom/area. The catch? Students must check EACH answer with you, the teacher, before they can move on. If they get the wrong answer they get to try again. ($)

Block Puzzles are a great problem-solving challenge! Students must fill in digits 1-9 in the puzzles to make the six number sentences true. All four operations - adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing - are used to complete the puzzles. To add extra motivation, a riddle is introduced above the puzzles and the answer can be decoded by correctly figuring out where each digit is placed. $

You need as many Post-its as problems you will give, a Sharpie marker, and a pencil. Write the the first problem on the front of a Post-it note at the start (maybe this one is a different color). Now write the answer on another Post-it with a new problem on the underneath (in pencil). Students have to work problems and then search for the answers. Great way to get students doing math and get them up and moving!
