This activity requires students to identify properties of numbers. Students color in the part of the leaf that represents the correct property by using the key provided.
All properties are represented in variable (Algebra) form. You may also be interested in another product that represents the same properties but in number (Arithmetic) form instead.
10 Properties Included:
Commutative Property of Addition and Multiplication
Associative Property of Addition and Multiplication
Multiplicative Property of Zero
Multiplicative and Additive Inverse
Multiplicative and Additive Identity
When finished, students can cut out the tree leaf and display.
These leaves could be used to make a great colorful bulletin board.
This activity could serve as a center, a group activity, independent practice, or left in emergency sub plans. It can also be used as a formative assessment tool to assess students' knowledge of properties.
Students will have fun and have the opportunity to color while learning the important concept of properties.
