A teacher-faciliated activity that teaches students to multiply whole numbers and fractions.
Alex’s crazy dream leads students on a multiplication adventure. Students draw a picture, use repeated addition, and write a multiplication equation to solve word problems.
8 problems include multiplication of whole numbers and fractions.
Use with the whole class, during guided math, with small groups, or in tutoring or intervention.
This activity includes clear and concise teacher directions, an example with questioning, an answer key, and conversation starters that give students what they need to have meaningful academic discussions.
