Product Description
This 5-part lesson would be a great addition to any expressions unit. See a brief description of each part below:

Problem of the Day: At the beginning of the lesson, students will take a few minutes to answer the problem of the day. Students can write their responses in a notebook, on a loose leaf sheet of paper or on the papers provided. After a few minutes, have students check the work of another classmate, or they can check their own.

Notes: Together as a class, spend some time going over the distributive property. Guided notes are helpful for all types of learners. Students don’t have to rush to write everything down, but they are still required to pay attention so information isn’t missed. I have a more descriptive explanation of how I teach the distributive property in the ‘distributive property notes’ file.

Trail Activity: Cut out each problem. Place the problems around the room (sticky tack to the wall, put on desk tops, etc.). I would suggest putting the problems in alphabetical order, but it is not required. To begin, start with any of the 20 problems. Simplify the distributive property problem on the bottom of the card. Look for the simplified answer on the top of another card around the room. This will tell students which problem is next in line. Students will continue working until they get back to where they started.

Practice Worksheet: Students will complete the practice worksheet on the distributive property. This worksheet can be given as an individual assignment or students could work with a partner or in a group.

Exit Slip: In the final minutes of the lesson, have student complete their
exit slip. This can be completed on a worksheet, on a loose leaf sheet of paper or on the papers provided. This is a great way to assess the level of understanding for each student in the class.
