Explain it to the elf!
Students wrote a friendly letter to a quickly-crafted elf explaining multiplication concepts and vocabulary. Click here to grab a free copy of the "Explain it to the Elf" sheets I created. I've left it extremely open-ended so you can adapt the task to your grade level. Some possible prompts could ask students to explain:
- how to round a number using a number line
- how to estimate a sum or difference using rounding
- why an answer is reasonable (or NOT reasonable)
- how to add or subtract with regrouping
