Confucius Says 2+2+2 = 2X3

Can your class create their own ancient Chinese calculator? They make an abacus by using 10 rows of 10 beads each. In a series of six lessons, they use the abacus while playing multiplication games and participating in classroom discussions. A wonderful way to promote number sense and drive home the concept of multiplication.

Lesson Planet has taken the stress away of trying to come up with an interesting lesson that hooks the students. This is important for a rookie teacher.
