QR Code Scavenger Hunt: Fluency with Multiplication Facts

Spring has finally sprung here and the reality of the end of the school year is getting closer and closer.  With that in mind, I have been noticing that my third graders are still lacking fluency with their multiplication facts.  These facts are something we have worked on in grade 3 for many years but now that we are using the Common Core standards, it is very clear that they should be fluent in this range.  I also have some fourth graders who are not quite there with fact fluency so I created this QR code scavenger hunt another way to give kids more practice.

Here is the Common Core standard for grade 3
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.

This was a lot of fun and I have decided to leave it up in the classroom for students to do again when they are done with other work or have a few minutes of free time.

Here is a peak at the scavenger hunt.  You can grab it for FREE at my TPT Store!  While you are there make sure you are following me so you are the first to know when I post new freebies!

QR code scavenger hunts are a great way to practice routine skills and are much more engaging and fun than worksheets.  They are great for skills like multi-digit addition and subtraction, and double digit multiplication.

If you have never tried a QR code scavenger hunt, check out this post to see how easy it is!

Here are few shots of this freebie in action!

Hope you enjoy this freebie!
