Some kids, more than others, are visual learners. For some kids, it’s easier to learn something when they’ve seen it, and especially if they’ve written or drawn it themselves. This is why we love these multiplication flowers as a way of helping kids learn their multiplication. Not only is it a creative activity your kids will enjoy, but the activity will help them remember their maths. Also, once they’ve created these pretty flowers, you can hang them up on a wall so they can continue to look and learn.
It’s simple: draw a circle in the middle of a piece of paper and put a number inside that circle. Next, you’ll draw the first layer of petals, and number those from 1 to 12 (or 1 to 10 for younger kids). The next layer of petals is the result of multiplying the number in the middle circle and the number in the first petal. And voila! Colour the flowers in to make them pretty.
I hope this is helpful (and fun!) for your visual learners.
