Multiply by 5’s with Apple Blossoms

Flowers are great for teaching mathematics. Depending on the type of flower, you can talk about symmetry or sums. All apple blossoms have 5 petals, which make them great for talking about multiplication by 5’s.

For this activity you only need my Free Printable Apple Blossom Hands-On Multiplication Activity Pack (click here to download), a pair of scissors, and some double sided tape.

Start out by having your children cut out the apple blossoms, which is great fine motor practice.

Talk them through each math problem. Explain why 5 x 1 is 5 and 5 x 2 is 10, using the images available.

Finally have them add the apple blossoms to the empty tree and continue to discuss multiplication by 5’s as they do so.
