Multiplication is big on third grade and I think doing some word problems that involve multiplication facts/concepts can be a good lesson plan. You can use visuals/manipulatives to talk about what it means to multiply. For example: 6 x 9 = 54. You can show that this is 6 groups of 9 (using a visual like cookies for example). Then also show 9 x 6 = 54, and how this means 9 groups of 6, again with visuals. This helps students understand the concept of multiplication. You could also easily tie in division to the lesson.
