  • Begin by reviewing the three multiplication strategies learned in the previous lessons (repeated addition, arrays, equal groups).  Explain that today's activity is creating a ThingLink to demonstrate their understanding of the three strategies.  The previously used teacher-created Popplet may also be accessed throughout the lesson to support students.
  • The teacher will introduce ThingLink to the class by showing the teacher-created project.  Students will get to investigate the teacher's example on their iPads using the ThingLink app.
