Students will be able to solve times 6 multiplication facts.

Students will reflect on facts and strategies they have learned. They will practice a set of facts with The Gynzy Math Problem Generator.

Students will begin by thinking about the strategies they already have used to learn the 0 - 5multiplication facts. Students review the identity, zero, and commutative properties of multiplication. Next, students practice skip-counting the multiples of 6, and practice is provided. Students then review the times 5 facts and use the strategy of times 5 plus one more group to solve ×6 equations. Students will demonstrate the skill by drawing the additional group. Students then practice the facts again by spinning a wheel that matches a color to reveal a fact on a dartboard. The lesson concludes with two word problems using the times 6 facts.

Students respond to ten multiple-choice and true/false questions.

Students outline arrays on graph paper. These are colored and decorated. The idea of tessellation is discussed.

- graph paper

- colored pencils, crayons, or markers (something to color with)
