Let’s take a look at the multiplication activities in action.

### 1. Multiplication Spin and Solve (1-12)

Multiplication Spin and Solve is a simple way to review multiplication facts. There is a digital spinner and page for each factor up to 12. Students spin the spinner, write the number down, and complete the multiplication fact by finding the product.

### 2. Multiplication Spin and Solve (Mixed Facts)

For a more challenging way to review mixed multiplication facts, students can use the double multiplication spinners to create a multiplication fact up to 12 x 12. Students spin the spinners and multiply the two factors to find the product.

### 3. Multiplication Commutative Property

The commutative property of multiplication states that you can multiply numbers in any order. Understanding this concept means students have less multiplication facts to memorise. In this active, students spin 2 factors on the double spinners and solve the multiplication fact. To show the commutative property in action, they write the multiplication fact in reverse order.

### 4. Multiplication Spin and Color an Array (1-12)

Arrays are a helpful visual representation for understanding multiplication. Students use the rows and columns to model repeated addition and solve the multiplication fact. In this activity, students spin a multiplication fact and color the matching array. Students are kept accountable by completing the multiplication table on the right-hand side of the Spin and Color an Array worksheet.

Instead of coloring the arrays, students can use math blocks or counters to cover the matching array.

### 5. Multiplication Spin and Build an Array (1-6)

In this activity, students build their array using the grid. Students spin the double digital spinners and color the correct number of rows and columns to match the spin. Using their array, they solve the multiplication fact.

### 6. Multiplication Spin and Build an Array (1-12)

This version of the Multiplication Spin and Build an Array covers multiplication facts up to 12 x 12.

### 7. Multiplication Number Bonds (1-12)

Number bonds let students see how numbers join together to form a relationship. In this activity, students use number bonds to show the relationship between numbers forming a multiplication fact. There is a digital spinner and a page for each factor up to 12. Students spin a factor and complete the number bond on the worksheet by writing the missing numbers.

### 8. Multiplication Number Bonds (Mixed Facts)

For a more challenging way to review mixed multiplication facts, students can use the double multiplication spinners to create a multiplication number bond up to 12 x 12. Students spin the spinners and multiply the two factors to find the product and complete the multiplication number bond.

### 9. Multiplication Fact Families

A fact family is a set of four related multiplication and division facts that use the same three numbers. This activity focuses on the multiplication portion of the fact family to help students with memorising their multiplication facts. Students spin the spinners and write the 2 numbers as factors of the multiplication fact. They complete the number bond and the multiplications facts using the multiplication commutative property.

### 10. Multiplication Spin and Color by Product version 1 (1-12)

The Multiplication Spin and Color by Product activity makes learning and memorizing multiplication facts a little more fun. There is a digital spinner and a coloring page for each factor up to 12. Students spin a number, solve the matching multiplication fact, and color the picture using the color code.

This activity is fun, interactive, and ideal for math centers.

### 11. Multiplication Spin and Color by Product version 2 (1-12)

In the second version of the Multiplication Spin and Color by Product activity, students spin a number and solve the multiplication table before proceeding to coloring the picture.

This is a fun and engaging way to reinforce the multiplication facts.

### 12. Multiplication Spin 4 in a Row (1-12)

This version of Multiplication Spin 4 in a Row can be played individually or in pairs. When played individually, students spin the spinner, solve the multiplication fact, and color the matching product. For accountability, students solve the matching multiplication facts located on the right-hand side of the worksheet. There is a digital spinner and a coloring page for each factor up to 12.

In a 2-player game, students spin the spinner and race to be the first player to create a line of four on the game board.
