This activity is based on 3.OA.5, the Commutative Property of Multiplication. I designed this activity as a scaffolding lesson for my students to fluently understand the standard. The activity provides visuals (number lines and arrays) for the Commutative Property of Multiplication. I use the activity as a scaffolding lesson, but it can be organized as a matching and sorting activity. I have also included a game board if you would like to differentiate the game and allow students to use the equation cards at math centers.
I teach in inclusive classrooms with special education students,
students in an early intervention program and proficient learners. This activity was created to motivate all students through differentiation.
