This lesson offers teachers the opportunity to listen to ways in which students reason about multi-digit multiplication. After the warm-up, students create their own Estimation Exploration activity and then facilitate their Estimation Exploration with other students in the class. Students can draw pictures or find images to use for their Estimation Exploration from books or other sources as the teacher determines or use actual objects from around the classroom.
