Great activity to get students to understand and apply the distributive property to things around the house. It lets them see how to distribute the number in front of the parentheses with both objects inside the parentheses. It is also a great introduction to review the distributive property for the higher grade levels. Great introduction or review for CC7.NS.2a.
To extend this activity, students can create their own problems using their own theme.
This could also be a math center.
An answer key is included.
