Reviewer Comments:

This problem-solving lesson focuses on multiplication for upper-elementary students. The lesson plan has Microsoft Word and PDF files that can be edited by individual teachers for their own classroom use. There are a few grammatical errors that need to be fixed. Also, the "Wrap Up" problem is different in the "Presentation" from the "Student Packet." Most parts of the lesson are thorough and include everything that is needed. There is a "Hands On" graphic organizer that could use further explanation. There are no Hands-on activities suggested that incorporate math manipulatives into the lesson but teachers can always adapt this for their own students.
