Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Video is from:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeidqzJNA2o This activity is the fourth activity in the Magnificant Multiplication Collection. Links to the additional activities can be found at https://sites.google.com/view/magnificient-multiplication/math/seesaw-activity-links?authuser=0 This activity works best with tablets, as students will be taking pictures of objects they build in the classroom. However, it would be possible also to take a picture with a laptop. This activity would be difficult with a desktop computer. This activity was created with the intention of adding it to a class blog post. If you do not have the class blog enabled for your class, please delete that section from the instructions before assigning the activity and also revise the audio instructions.
