Pennies, Pasta and Paper: A Math Project

So a good portion of this weekend was my youngest and I working on a major math project poster for his third grade.

He had the assignment for 11 x 10.

We had to define multiplication, factors and products.  Then create sections illustrating an area model, repeated addition, equal sized moves on a number line, equal sized groups, and an array.

I set up the layout, he chose our colors, I did the writing and my boyo did a LOT of gluing.  It took us several hours, but here is the end result:

As we were taking it to school, my boy laughed and said, "Momma!  It's covered in pennies and pasta and paper!" (:
