## Lesson Plan Description

This half day lesson plan is broken down into 2 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing Numbers in Base Ten: Multi-digit Multiplication (4.NBT.5). These lessons include: helpful student notes of using area models and partial products for reference, guided and independent practice of multi-digit multiplication, 4-digit by 1-digit, 2-digit by 2-digit, area models, partial products, expanded form , and a game to reinforce the concept of multi-digit multiplication.

• Segment 1: students will multiply a whole number of up to four digits by one-digit whole numbers, multiply two two-digit whole numbers, multiply multi-digit numbers using the area model, and multiply multi-digit numbers using partial products.
• Segment 2: students will play 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.
