A sorting activity to demonstrate an understanding of multiplication and division fact families.
Use this teaching resource so that your students can consolidate their understanding of fact families.
Print the fishbowls and fish for each student. Students select their own multiplication and division number sentences to complete the blank fish.
Students cut out the four fish that belong to the same fact family and paste into one fishbowl. Students write the three numbers that make up each fact family on the top of the fishbowl. Repeat until all four fishbowls are completed.

Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide.2 Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × ...
Understand division as an unknown-factor problem. For example, find 32 ÷ 8 by finding the number that makes 32 when multiplied by 8.
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all pr...
