Product Description
This is a fun hands on way to explore arrays and the distributive property of multiplication. This can be done whole group, small group or as a center. You will need construction paper cut into squares and rectangles, clue stick, individual hole punches, and the worksheets. Students will then “punch” out the arrays matching the multiplication sentence on the paper. They will then clue it in the corresponding rectangle and write the product. I have also included the distributive property multiplication sentence on the right side of the paper. Your students will make a second array (just like the first one) and cut it and clue both pieces on the distributive property side. They will then write the equation that matches the two new arrays after their cut. The second version the only difference is the students roll two dice to get the numbers in their multiplication sentence. My hopes are that your students will see that even though the array has been cut the product stays the same. I usually display these outside my classroom beside my Open Array Bulletin Board Activity. Check it out!! I hope your students enjoy this activity as much as mine have.
