PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Distributive Property - Discovering & Understanding How Distributing Actually Works:

**This resource is also available in a DISCOUNTED bundle: Expressions & Equations Bundle

This activity is an investigation of the Distributive Property. This is a great introduction for the first time seeing the property. You can have students work through this set of worksheets before they have been exposed to the Distributive Property. It also can be a great review for students who are revisiting the property. They will get a deeper look and gain more understanding of how the Distributive Property really works.

The activity is based on making bracelets. Students develop expressions for the cost of each bracelet order and rewrite it different ways using the distributive property before they are even aware that they are using any property. The Distributive Property is named and introduced on the fourth page and is followed up with practice.

A color version and black and white version are included. Students can work individually or in pairs. Encourage them to re-read and attempt to work through the guided investigation on their own. Resist the temptation to give hints. Your class will develop their own understanding of the Distributive Property through the guided inquiry-style questioning.

The activity is five pages long. Take a look at the preview file for more detail.
