Tea Time for Four
ACMNA057 MA2-6NA For 2 students per board. Whilst the instructions suggest using base ten blocks to make the equal groups, as can be seen in the picture, any material, including counters, can be used. It will help children understand that multiplication is repeated addition and they will be able to see the number of groups and the number of items in each group. Each player uses a different coloured counter. The 1-10 or 0-9 die is rolled and that many items are placed in each of the four tubs. The total is then calculated using skip counting and a counter is placed on a space displaying that number. 1 board.
