The area model is a wonderfully visual model to help students conceptually understand multi-digit multiplication. When built using base-ten blocks, it is even more effective. It pairs perfectly with the partial products method for recording multiplication and helps build an understanding of the standard algorithm.
This totally digital resource for use with Google Slides™ includes 20 slides with three different types of 2-digit by 1-digit area model problems and features movable base-ten blocks for modeling the problems. A separate file shows the solutions to all of the problems.
