LCM and GCF Foldable

With my 6th and 7th grade students, I find that when I teach Least Common Multiple and Greatest Common Factor, the kids “get it” so quickly in isolation. When they are taking a test or quiz, undoubtably at least 1/2 the class confuses the two.

Before I gave my 7th graders a test last week, we made these 2 door foldables. Each table was given a set of numbers. They had to find the GCF and LCM of the sets. Students then shared with the other groups in the class.

  3. Oh so necessary! I will use this soon!

  4. We’re doing this in my 4th grade class now. Great idea!
