Practice multiplication using arrays with this 2-page worksheet that has students build arrays and write them as multiplication sentences.
This worksheet is best used as independent practice as part of your multiplication lesson after students are introduced to the skill of using and creating arrays.
On page 1, students will write the multiplication equation to match each array. On page 2, they will create an array for each multiplication equation and solve it.
In addition to individual student work time, this worksheet can be used as a(n):
- guided math group activity
- math station/center activity
- exit ticket activity
- whole-class review activity (via smartboard)
