#### What educators are saying

These slides helped my students see the Distributive property visually. It was a great resource to use with remote learning.
This is an engaging way to review distributive property. We are fully remote and I use this activity on Schoology.

### Description

Do your third grade students need more practice with the distributive property of multiplication? Are you looking for engaging, rigorous games that will help students with this important skill (without taking hours to prep!)? Look no further! These print AND digital activities will meet your grade 3 students' needs. There are four multiplication property games to help students practice their math skills - in a fun way! They align with 3.OA.5. These 3rd grade math activities are great for practicing the distributive property of multiplication.

WHAT'S INCLUDED? (PRINT AND DIGITAL)

Game 1: Multiple Choice

Students choose the answer choice that correctly splits the equation apart.

Game 2: Write the Equations

Students put a black line in the array to split it. Then, they write the equations and answer in the boxes provided.

Game 3: Split the Equation

Students decide how to split the equation into two smaller equations. They type their equations in the orange boxes.

Game 4: Put Them Together

Students type in the equations for each array. Then, they put them together using the distributive property in the pink box.

HOW TO IMPLEMENT:

There are 11 problems included in each of the 4 games (total of 44 questions).

Digitally: The first problem is always an example for students so they know what to do. I would recommend completing 5 questions during your lesson together and assigning the other 5 for students to complete independently.

Print: Print the task cards out and put them in a math center. Have students record answers on the recording sheet provided. Students can use the self-checking answer key to check their work. You can choose between the color and black and white option.

Aligns with Common Core 3.OA.5:

• Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide.2Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)

This aligns with 3rd Grade Texas TEKS:

• TEKS 3.4G: use strategies and algorithms, including the standard algorithm, to multiply a two-digit number by a one-digit number. Strategies may include mental math, partial products, and the commutative, associative, and distributive properties

This aligns with Florida BEST Standards (B.E.S.T.)

• MA.3.AR.1.1 Apply the distributive property to multiply a one-digit number and two-digit number. Apply properties of multiplication to find a product of one-digit whole numbers.
