What’s in the Worksheet?
The worksheet includes 12 different arrays featuring various sea creatures such as crabs, fish, and more. Underneath each array, students will find space to write two multiplication sentences. For example, if an array has 3 rows of 4 crabs, students would write the sentences:

Creative Ways to Use the Multiplication Arrays Worksheet
This versatile worksheet offers many different ways to integrate multiplication learning into your classroom. Here are a few ideas:

Classroom Activity: Use the worksheet as part of a math lesson to introduce or reinforce the concept of arrays. You can work through the first few arrays together as a class and then let students complete the rest independently or in pairs.

Math Stations: Set up a math station where students rotate through and complete different math challenges, including the Multiplication Arrays worksheet. This makes for a fun, interactive way to practice multiplication skills.

Homework Assignment: Send the worksheet home for extra practice. Students can work on it with their parents, reinforcing what they’ve learned in class.

Group Work: Pair students together and have them discuss each array before writing the multiplication sentences. This encourages collaboration and helps them learn from each other.

Classroom Display: After students have completed the worksheet, hang the arrays on the classroom wall. This can serve as a visual reminder of the multiplication strategies they’ve learned.
Why Use Arrays for Teaching Multiplication?
Arrays are a fantastic tool for teaching students about multiplication because they visually represent how multiplication works. By counting rows and columns, students start to understand the relationship between repeated addition and multiplication. Plus, seeing different ways to represent a multiplication fact (like 3 x 4 and 4 x 3) helps students develop a more flexible understanding of math concepts.
