Balance Scale Math

Get multiplication into "balance" with this math lesson I created. Balance Scale Multiplication is played in partners with a scale, dice and counters. Each student rolls the dice, multiplies, and places the counters in their side of the scale. They record their equations for each turn on the worksheet below which is available on my {website}. At the end students compare their side of the scale as being heavier or lighter than their partner's.  This game makes multiplication a blast. This same game is also available for addition.
