*This unit is completely different from my other Multiplication & Division Exploration Unit (Math Workshop). Both units discuss the properties of multiplication, but this unit discusses it with a different viewpoint – the viewpoint of how to use the properties to figure out the product of a multiplication fact. None of the activities or lessons are duplicates.*

These lessons are perfect for tutors, paraprofessionals, volunteers, and substitutes! They are low prep, too!

With 15 complete lesson plans in this unit, that’s less than a dollar a day for everything you need–worksheets, centers, scripted lessons, vocabulary, and much more! It’s definitely worth the value!

This unit plan is perfect if you have always wanted to implement math workshop but weren’t sure how or just starting out! This unit plan saves you time! Take back your weekends without sacrificing quality teaching!
