One times eight is eight

A spider searched for a mate

Two times eight is sixteen

A giraffe is muscular and lean

Three times eight is twenty-four

A scorpion had lost a deadly claw

  • Draw (or print) a spider’s web like the one below and use the spaces to recordĀ  your 8 times table. Can you record other multiplication tables (2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 10x etc.) in the web?
