Math Lesson - "St. Patrick's Day Multiplication Hidden Picture"

by Bethany Baptiste
2nd-5th grade

Looking for a fun St. Patrick's Day math activity? Try Paddy's Products!

After students solve 60 multiplication problems, 
they must use a code to color the hidden picture. 
If they solved the multiplication problems correctly, 
they will reveal a picture of a leprechaun. 

There are 3 levels of this activity included to make differentiation a cinch. 
  • Level 1 (one leprechaun) multiplies basic facts
  • Level 2 (2 leprechauns) multiplies 2-digit by 1-digit problems
  • Level 3 (3 leprechauns) multiplies 3-digit by 1-digit problems

No matter what level students use, all will end up with the same picture (shown below). 
Fun for all!

This activity is aligned to fourth and fifth grade common core standard NBT.5. 

I included the answer key and correlating black and white copies for your convenience. 

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
