Multiplication: Area Models & Partial Products Bundle with Game

4th Grade • Lesson Plan Bundle

Lesson Plan Description

Explaining the “why” of multiplication and understanding place value are 2 essential math skills for our 4th graders.  Your students will have multiple opportunities to practice key vocabulary, solve problems and explain answers with their peers as well as show you what they know by playing a game!  Your students will:

  • Segment 1: collaborate with peers to practice the language of place value, take notes, review and practice multiplying whole numbers using the area model (up to 4 digits by 1 digit  and 2 digit whole numbers and partial products)
  • Segment 2: demonstrate their understanding by playing the game “Multiplication Jump Around” to practice multiplying a whole number of up to four digits by one-digit whole numbers or a two-digit number by another two-digit number

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
