Multiplication Games – Flowers in the Meadow
This number will be the total of multiplication equation.
So, for example, if I have a flower with number 10 in the middle and 5 petals, kids will figure out that each petal is equal to 2.
My kids never memorized multiplication facts, so far I am just letting them play with the concept and really understand it.
It was interesting to see how intuitive this activity is.
My 5 year old only glanced at “36” numbered flower with 6 petals and told me that each petal is 6 units, when I asked him why, he said “I just see it in my mind ” 🙂 Working with blocks made operations like that very visual and fun and kids sometimes don’t even think twice about an answer.
We had lots of fun and did a few sets of this game changing numbers to more and more challenging ones.
Hope you enjoy it too!
