Interpreting Products: Groupings

3rd Grade • 1 Lesson Plan

Lesson Plan Description

Helping our 3rd graders “see” the why of multiplication requires a lot of practice with the concept using different strategies.  In this 1 hour lesson your students will:

  • Collaborate with peers, use the “language” of math and take math “notes”
  • Practice recognizing the relationship between multiplication and repeated addition using skip counting
  • Explain the products by matching “a” number of groups with “b” number of objects in each group
  • Interpret products using drawings and groupings
  • Produce an “exit ticket” to help you plan next instructional steps
