Product Description
Use the idea of chocolate bars breaking apart to teach the "Break Apart Strategy" of Distributive Property of Multiplication. The chocolate bar is the array (area model) showing the product.

Easy to set up for math center, early finisher, homework, morning work, and more.

Understand the Distributive Property of Multiplication by having children roll dice or flip over cards to build an area model (array). Write an equation for the area model. Next, break apart (use the distributive property of multiplication) the area model (like a chocolate bar!) Write the new equation.

Alternate - have students roll dice or flip cards over. Write a word problem. Show how to solve two ways - without distributive property and with distributive property. You could even have students write word problems for each other and swap.
