Dinosaur Multiplication

My boys have been begging me to teach them more about multiplication. Since we are reading a book about dinosaurs, I figured it might be fun to incorporate that into the lesson.

The supplies

Dino mult 1

I wrote a multiplication problem on the whiteboard. The first number was the number of "nests" and the second number was the number of "dinosaur eggs".

The boys placed the M&Ms onto the felt nests, and then wrote the problem in their notebooks.

Although Luke isn't old enough to multiply, he had fun counting the "dinosaur eggs".
