Multiplication Match-Up Puzzles

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 8 pages | Years: 1 - 3

A match-up activity to assist students in understanding multiplication word problems.

Use this activity when working on early multiplication skills.

This match-up activity has been designed to help students begin to understand word problems that relate to multiplication.

Cut the puzzle pieces and adhere to thick cardboard. Students must match each word problem with either a multiplication number sentence, a repeated addition number sentence, or an array. The images on the array puzzle pieces are non-descript – in each instance they are asterisks.

As there are 30 puzzle pieces, this activity could be used as a whole class problem-solving activity, with each student finding their match-up partner.
